Commemorative Tree Program
The Arboretum at the University of Nevada, Reno is pleased to make it possible for you to plant a tree to remember or honor a colleague, friend, or loved one. Such a lasting, living gift is ideal for memorializing a loved one or celebrating a birth, marriage, graduation, anniversary, or retirement while supporting the Arboretum. Commemorative trees are available for a donation of $1000 each. You can use our Commemorative Tree donation system to purchase a tree.
