Sponsor a Tree
By sponsoring a tree, you help the Esplanade Association care for the Esplanade’s nearly 1,700 trees. There are a wide array of tree species on the Esplanade, including extraordinary specimens of weeping willow. Your sponsorship gift supports our pruning and maintenance initiatives, which keep the park’s trees healthy and strong.
When you Sponsor a Tree you receive a certificate of sponsorship, a photograph of your tree, and a map showing the location of your tree. In addition, a unique metal embossed tree plaque will be placed on your tree. Tree plaques will contain the Botanical and common name of the tree, a donor personalized inscription and year of donation. You can sponsor in someone else’s name, too, making this a unique gift that celebrates a friend, commemorates a momentous occasion, or honors the memory of a loved one.
Tree Sponsorships last for 10 years. Donors can double the terms of sponsorship by doubling the contribution. At the end of the sponsorship period, the donor has the opportunity to renew at the then current contribution level. It is the donor’s responsibility to keep the Esplanade Association updated as to their current contact information.
A donation of $2,500 is requested to Sponsor-A-Tree. For more information, please contact please contact Jo-Ann Lovejoy, Mission Advancement Officer (JLovejoy@esplanade.org).
