Commemorative Tree Program
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
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. Your gift ensures that future generations will enjoy the tree canopy of our seaside community! 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.
Trees are one of the most enduring symbols of beauty and life. This unique program encourages you to donate to a tree planting fund to commemo-rate a special event or to honor a family member, friend or pet.
It's a memorable gift that keeps on giving - year after year.
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 tree planting fund will have a custom engraved leaf attached to the tree sculpture.
There are three sponsorship levels available and each one will be acknowledged with a different color leaf. In addition, donors will receive a recognition letter from the City.
A GIFT TO THE FUND CAN BE USED TO HONOR MANY EVENTS INCLUDING:
– the birth of a child or grandchild
– a new pet
– the memory of a loved one
– a retirement celebration
Community associations, churches, and businesses can also use the program to honor individuals or groups for special achievements or leadership recognitions.
Please note that the trees funded through this program will be planted on City property and will not have individual commemorative markers at the planting site.
