This special program offers the public the opportunity to take part in the stewardship of the parks by sponsoring a tree or bench. In recognition of your tax-deductible contribution to the Friends for the care of the park, a plaque will be placed near an existing tree or bench in one of the parks, or a tree label affixed as part of identifying a tree in the Public Garden, for a term of 15 years. Donors will have the opportunity to renew the sponsorship when the term ends. Depending upon availability there may be the option to plant a new tree in one of the parks.

Contributions required to sponsor a tree or bench range from $5,000-$20,000. You may choose a short message on the plaque to celebrate a special occasion or to remember or honor someone.

For more information or assistance, please contact Lynn Page Flaherty, Vice President of Advancement & External Affairs, at 617-723-8144 x 204 or
