Memorial Tree Program

Create enduring memories for your loved one right here in the community they held dear. Embrace the significance of precious moments and milestones in our lives by celebrating the life of your loved one with a Memorial Tree and Marker at Pastime Park. As your tree flourishes year after year, their cherished memories will continue to thrive. Immerse yourself in the beauty of this tribute, where handcrafted Memorial Markers, meticulously carved from solid granite, bear your chosen words, including the name of your cherished one.

A Living Legacy
Give memories life by planting a Memorial  Tree at Pastime Park. You can select from the following trees, or select similar trees to be planted in memory of your loved one.   Many types of trees can be planted, and we will work with you to determine which trees are most suitable for the conditions in the park.  Below are just a few examples of trees that do well:

  • White or Red Oak: majestic and long living
  • Autumn Blaze Maple or October Glory Maple: offer spectacular autumn color
  • Flowering Dogwood: beautiful flowers in the spring
  • Eastern Redbud: beautiful flowers in the spring
  • Other appropriate trees can be found here:  Ohio Native Tree Guide
Pricing - $350
All Memorial Trees are 1" to 1.5" caliper and approximately 5 to 7-feet tall at planting. The price includes your tree of choice, the planting of the tree, and the Memorial Marker. Village staff will work with you to find the optimal planting site for your tree. 

Timing of Planting
Trees can be purchased year-round, but do best when planted in the spring or early fall. These planting times are optimal and will help ensure the longevity of the tree.
