Memorial Tree & Bench Program

If you have a loved one that you are looking to honor with a tree or bench, please read the details below. 

For more information, please call the Parks & Recreation Department at 281-996-3220.  
  1. Memorial Tree
  2. Memorial Bench


1. The sponsor/donor must meet with Kimberly Ramirez or James Toney to receive approval of the tree(s) location. Location requests are considered, but not all can be accommodated due to existing park events/programming and layout.

2. Trees must be at least 15 gallons.

3. Trees may be placed in Old City Park, the Dog Park, and Lake Friendswood. Stevenson Park is not accepting memorial trees at this time. 

4. The sponsor/donor will need to arrange with an approved landscaping company to plant the tree(s) in the park. A list of approved landscaping companies can be provided upon request, or the parks staff can plant the tree.

5. The Parks Department will add irrigation to the tree(s) to ensure its survival.

6. The sponsor/donor must order the tree plaques at Engraphics (281-992-9273), to ensure it matches with other existing plaques. Once the plaque is ready, please deliver to City Hall and the Parks Department will install the plaque after the tree has been planted.
