Tree of Life Program

Tree of Life Information Here 

Tree for LifeThis program offers individuals, families and friends the opportunity to plant a tree to recognize a special person, event or organization. Trees give a sense of permanence and continuity.  This is a program of the Prospect Heights Parks Foundation, recently formed 501(c)3 non-profit to enhance local programs, parks and facilities, 

How are trees and locations selected?

Choose from a variety of trees with different sizes and characteristics:  colorful blooms, shade fullness, charm to the landscape, etc. Choose from a variety: Spruce, Redbud, Oak, Locust, etc.  Trees are planted in the spring each year and Park District staff will help choose the tree and location based upon your preferences. The Park District is responsible for acquiring, planting, pruning, fertilizing, and watering the trees. 

What is the cost?   

Tree prices differ based on their availability, species and maturity. Donations may vary from $300 to $700.  All tree donations are acknowledged with an engraved leaf on the donor recognition tree on display in the recreation center.  A memorial plaque to be planted adjacent to the tree is optional.  

Please contact Mark Grassi, Supt. of Parks & Facilities at (847) 394-2848 or [email protected]  to discuss details.
