Symbolic tree planting ceremonies are an age-old ritual, spanning many countries and numerous cultures. Putting a healthy, young tree in the ground is a symbol of celebration: representing life, hope, growth and continuity. Tree plantings have been used to mark special occasions, celebrations of life and lives well lived.
KCCA’s Community Forest started in 1999. For each eighty dollar donation a tree is planted in the Bucke Conservation Area as a tribute to the person named by the donor. Over 200 people have been honoured in this way.
Cost per tree is $75.
