Trees Honoring Troops

Trees Honoring TroopsThis program is both a commemorative and memorial tree planting program for active, veterans, and fallen members of military service. Under the program, a purchased tree is planted for a past or present member of the United States Armed Services. The tree will be planted in either a public park or cemetery located in Rhode Island. The trees will be cared for by the Rhode Island Tree Council for three years.

The Tree, The Location, The Caring

The TreeThe plant will be shade or ornamental tree. The final selection will be based on site suitability. The tree will be a high-quality, nursery grown specimen between 8 to 10 feet in height. Trees purchased before February 1 will be planted the following spring, April 1 thru May 30; any tree purchased after this date will be planted in the fall, September 1 thru October 15. The planting location in parks or cemeteries* can be chosen by the donor or by RITree.

All program trees will be maintained for 3 years after installation. Care will include annual mulching, pruning and watering. All of these services will be performed by RITree or their affiliates.
