Tree & Bench Sponsor Program

Through the Memorial Tree and Bench Program anyone can provide a unique dedication to honor a friend, relative, or member of an organization by placing a tree or bench in one of Bellevue’s Parks. 

This dedication provides a lasting memory and enhances the meaning of a tree or bench to others.  The gift is also a valuable contribution to our park system to be used and enjoyed by all.

Tree Sponsors

The cost of a memorial tree is $425.  This price includes the tree, plaque on recognition board, regular maintenance including fertilizing, pruning and mulching.  The trees are 2 – 2 ½ inches in diameter, balled and burlapped.  Trees will be planted at the appropriate time of the year to ensure optimal growth (typically May & October as weather permits).  The six tree species available for this program are shown below.

Freeman Maple - A naturally occurring hybrid between a Silver Maple and a Red Maple.  Its brilliant orange-red color in the fall is similar to a Red Maple.  It has the ability to grow in almost all soils as does a Silver Maple. A fully mature Freeman Maple has a height of 40-60’.

Sugar Maple – The Wisconsin State Tree.  One of the hardest and long lived of all the maples.  Noted for extraordinary fall colors of gold, orange, and scarlet.  A fully mature Sugar Maple reaches a height of 50-75’.

Bur Oak – A very tough, durable oak tree once established.  Very tolerant of high alkaline soils.  Most have interesting corky bark on young branches.  A fully mature Bur Oak reaches a height of 60-80’.

Swamp White Oak – Large lowland tree.  One of the easiest oaks to transplant.  Prefers slightly acidic soils.  A Swamp White Oak can reach a height of 65-75’.

Kentucky Coffeetree – An ugly duckling in youth, maturing into a graceful swan.  Its bluish-green compound leaves give a lacy appearance in summer.  The flaking bark and bold branching add winter interest.  Female trees produce 5-10” long, thick brown leathery pods which provide winter interest.  A fully mature Kentucky Coffeetree can reach a height of 50-60’.

American Linden – A stately, native, lowland tree with dense foliage.  Spreading, low-hung branches.  Sweet Smelling, pale-yellow flowers come alive in June.  The American Linden can reach a height of 65-75’.

Bench Sponsors

The cost of a memorial bench is $950.  The price includes a six foot bench with a back plaque, and installation on a concrete pad.  Benches will be installed in the Early Summer or Fall.
