Plant A Tree

This program is designed to allow participants an opportunity to remember or honor a loved one by having a tree planted in their name along a Farragut greenway or in a Farragut park.

Participation in this program includes the purchase and planting of the tree, a plaque set in concrete to mark the tree, and a warranty for the tree.

Every effort will be made to place the tree along the greenway or in the park of your choice. However, certain species may be better suited for certain areas. The Town staff will assess the desired species and proposed location to determine the highest likelihood of survival.

Trees ordered by August 31 of each year will be planted during the optimal planting season during the months of November and December. The Town will notify the donor with a letter when the tree and plaque are in place.

For more information about this program, please contact the Town of Farragut Parks & Recreation Department at 218-3376.
