Alternative Presents: Sponsor a Tree in your local park

Have you ever thought about commemorating a special event in an exceptional way, or dedicating a unique memorial to a loved one?

Perhaps you would like to leave a living legacy at a place you love.
Autumn is the perfect time to sponsor a tree with Lancaster City Council and help your district to be greener too.
Trees can be sponsored by individuals, families, groups of friends, community groups, schools, businesses, and can be sponsored as a green gift, a memorial to a loved one, to celebrate a special occasion, or just for the joy of watching it grow!

Through the scheme, anybody can sponsor the planting of a new tree of their choice in either Ryelands Park, Greaves Park or Happy Mount Park.  Some parish councils are also taking part in the scheme so that trees can be planted elsewhere in the district.

New trees can be sponsored for £150 each, which covers the cost of purchasing the tree, planting and the maintenance required whilst the tree becomes established.  If the tree fails within the first five years a replacement will be planted free of charge.

Trees are planted between the end of November and the beginning of March each year.
