Commemorative Tree Fund

August 15th, 2019

Planting a tree on Rehoboth Beach’s public property provides a gift to the entire community that lasts generations. Due to numerous requests, the City of Rehoboth Beach has re-launched an updated version of its popular tree donation program first started on Arbor Day in 1987. Trees purchased through this program are planted on public property and cared for by the City of Rehoboth Beach. To recognize your generous gift, local artist Bill Wolff was commissioned to create a tree sculpture permanently installed in the City Hall atrium. Each donor to the Commemorative Tree Fund will have a custom engraved leaf attached to the tree sculpture. Your contribution can commemorate special events such as birthdays, graduations, and weddings. It can also be used to recognize the dedication of a volunteer or community member as well as a memorial to a loved one.

The Commemorative Tree Fund is a partnership between the City of Rehoboth Beach and the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Trees (MACT). MACT’s mission is to preserve and grow the tree canopy of Rehoboth Beach. For more information, please visit cityofrehoboth.com/trees or call the Communications Department at 302-227-6181 ext. 522 or [email protected]. Commemorative tree donation forms are also available at City Hall, 229 Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Pay tribute to someone special or celebrate a significant life event and keep Rehoboth Beach green. Contribute to the Commemorative Tree Fund to support the planting of trees on public property.
