Memorial Trees

To honor a loved one with a living memorial tree, contact Bowling Green Parks & Recreation.  A memorial tree in one of our City parks or cemeteries will be marked with a stone engraved with your loved one’s name.  There are different fees associated with marking an existing tree versus planting a new one.
