Tree Donation Program

You may chose the location for your tree in one of three parks:

Woodland Estates Park
180 Midlane Drive, Crystal Lake
Feinberg Park
701 Juniper Lane, Crystal Lake
Ken Bird Park
1800 Thomasville Lane, Crystal Lake

Orders placed before May 15 will be planted in the spring. Or-ders placed between May 15 and October 15 will be planted in the fall. It is not possible to specify an exact date of planting. If the tree dies within the first year after planting, it will be replaced at no charge. Replacements after one year are optional, and the donor is responsible for the cost. The cost of the tree includes planting and maintenance. To protect the tree from damage and disease, and to reduce littering, donors may not decorate the tree or leave personal mementos at the planting site.

Tree donations are publicly recognized with an engraved brass leaf that is placed on the Tree of Life in the Crystal Lake Park District Administrative Office. For an additional fee, a tree marker can be made with your customized message and hung in the tree.

Park benches may also be donated. The bench size and style is determined by the park district. The Crystal Lake Park District Tree Donation Program is a perfect way to remember a loved one, honor someone special or commemorate an important occasion, and at the same time, benefit the community and future generations.


If you would like to consider a tree memorial for 2016, download the 2017 Tree Memorial Information. Credit card payments must be made in person at the Crystal Lake Park District Administrative Office. You will be contacted when your order is received to discuss the details. A gift card commemorating your donation will be sent to the person of your choice and you will receive a notice after the tree has been planted.
