Legacy Tree


Give a gift that will last several lifetimes! Trees are one of nature’s best gifts to humankind and the planting of trees has always symbolized peace, life, growth, and hope for the future. The City of Longview Legacy Tree Program allows groups and individuals to donate trees to memorialize a loved one or pet, to honor the birth of a child, or to commemorate a special event. Whatever the reason, your generous gift will be recognized and appreciated by visitors for decades to come. Trees purchased through the program are planted and placed in City parks and along City trails. Exact placement is at the discretion of the Parks and Recreation Department.
