Tucson Clean & Beautiful, in cooperation with the City of Tucson and Pima County, announce the availability of commemorative trees along the Pantano River Park. Commemorative trees are available for purchase through Tucson Clean & Beautiful for $225 each, including the tree, irrigation lines and number marker installation, name dedication at a commemorative plaza, dedication certificate and guaranteed replacement. Tree dedications are partially tax-deductible. Trees may be purchased for dedication to honor or remember any friend or family member for special occasions.
The new Pantano River Park Commemorative Tree Program is based upon the success of the completed El Paseo de los Arboles Commemorative Tree Project where 600 trees were added on the Santa Cruz River bank. Over the next several years dedicated trees will restore more than two miles of natural habitat, and will grow to provide shade for users of this multi-use path. More than 170 of 570 planned trees to fill the park already have been planted.
An upcoming dedication ceremony will include a reading of the names for whom trees have been dedicated and names inscribed at the nearby Children’s Memorial Garden. A walking tour of newly dedicated trees concludes the ceremony.
