Memorial Tree Donations

Thank you for your interest in donating a memorial tree with Springfield Township. The donation will benefit residents and the community for many years and is much appreciated.

  3. Upon receipt of payment, the Township staff will order the tree.
  4. The Shade Tree Commission will contact the donor when the tree is received to discuss the planting.
  5. The Shade Tree Commission will email the donor a photograph of the memorial tree after planting.
  6. The Shade Tree Commission will provide the donor with a donation recognition letter.

Memorial Tree Donation Process

Fill out a complete application and return your application along with payment to the Township Administration Building. Application forms will not be accepted without full payment. Trees may be donated any time of the year, however, they will only be planted during the tree planting season.

Trees will be planted in areas based on the current lack of trees, the decline of existing mature trees, suitable soil type and future park development plans. The exact location within a park is at the discretion of the Shade Tree Commission.  Donors may specify a desired location at the time of application submission. If the tree dies within one year from the time it is planted, the Township will replace the tree with a tree of the same size and species, at our expense.
