Trees For Life
Through the Winfield Park District's "Trees-For-Life" program, individuals and groups are invited to donate a tree to any of the beautiful parks in the Winfield Park District. This gift can be in the name of someone special or to commemorate a special lifetime occasion.
Celebrate the major milestones in your life in a positive, lifelong way. The gift of a tree to the Winfield Park District will last a lifetime. Births, anniversaries, weddings, memorials, retirements, and graduations are just a few of the many occasions you may choose to recognize through the "Trees-For-Life" program.
Trees are planted in the spring and fall seasons. Arrangements must be made 30 days in advance of April and October plantings. Donors have the option of selecting the park in which the tree will be planted. Winfield Park District staff, with the assistance of the Winfield Area Gardeners club, will locate the best place to plant your tree within the park. Donors will receive a certificate identifying the species, its location, the date of the planting and the name of the person or event for which your commemorating.
Trees-For-Life costs $200 and may be selected from a variety of trees. The Park District will take responsibility for acquiring, planting, pruning, fertilizing, and watering the trees. Donors may hold a ceremony or dedication at the time of planting or shortly thereafter. For more information, please contact TJ Banks at (630) 653-3811 ext. 119.
