Tree Buddies

Honor the memory of a loved one or gain positive exposure for your business by sponsoring a park tree. Through your generous support, we gain community support for parkland preservation and beautification.
All trees sponsored now will be planted in late fall of 2021.

​​​​​​Personal Donations​​​​​​​

Place your personal mark on Virginia Beach by sponsoring a tree in a designated park facility. With over 200 parks in our city, there are plenty of communal sites from which to choose. It’s an incredible opportunity to honor a loved one. The honorary plaque can express your commemoration and will be shared with the community for years to come.​

Corporate Support

​Businesses also gain positive exposure for the company or organization by sponsoring a tree. The plaque can bear your business or organization name, address and phone number. Those that pass by your tree will know you are dedicated to community improvement and will appreciate the shade.
