Living Tree Donation ProgramLiving Tree Donation Program

By donating a tree to the Living Tree Donation Program, you can help beautify our city parks while at the same time celebrating life by planting a tree! You can plant a tree in tribute of a wedding, birth of a child, anniversary, or to honor the memory of a loved one.

How To Donate A Tree
You may donate money towards the purchase of a special tree, or donate a live tree (a tree still in the container). You select the park and Community Services will arrange the planting, as well as the tree maintenance. 

As a Department policy, we are not able to hold ceremonies. However if family and friends would like to celebrate after the tree is planted they may do so. In addition, due to the increased maintenance we do not allow the placement of decorations, notes, and ornaments on the trees.

Your tree will be planted in any park owned by the City of Chandler. Our staff will gladly work with you in selecting the type of tree and tree location in the park of your choice. Monetary tree donations are as follows:

  • 15 gallon container /6-8 ft.    $60 donation
  • 24" box/8-10 ft.                        $150
  • 36" box/10-12 ft.                      $500
  • 48" box/12-14 ft.                      $950

All donations of $500 and higher include a 4 x 7 cast bronze plaque that will be placed at the base of your tree. If you would like to purchase a plaque with the $60 or $150 donation, please include an additional $167 dollars with your donation. Please make all checks payable to:  "City of Chandler".

Please allow the Parks Division a minimum of ten business working days from the point of receiving your donation for your tree to be planted. If a plaque is ordered, please allow additional time (four weeks) for the plaque to be received. 

This program does not remove trees from personal property. All live tree must be delivered to the Chandler Community Center, 125 E. Commonwealth Ave., Chandler, AZ 85225.

All tree donations are tax deductible.
