Humans love trees. They are stately symbols of enduring beauty, health, prosperity, and longevity. Because of this love affair between humans and trees, there is a long and world-wide tradition of people planting trees as a way to honor those they love, admire, or respect. Consequently, the West Lafayette Tree Friends offer the “Tribute Trees” program to the West Lafayette Community.
The Tribute Trees program is a way for you to honor someone (or a group) by planting a tree to say we love you, we admire what you have done in your life, or we respect your accomplishments. Tribute trees can be used to honor many occasions such as retirements, significant accomplishments, the birth of a child, a wedding anniversary, the recognition of a beloved teacher, the celebration of a long-time and meaningful friendship, or the passing of a loved one. The only limit to planting a tribute tree is your imagination. A tribute tree not only honors the person, it also honors your community by adding a new tree to our urban forest with all the benefits trees bring.
