Memorial Trees

Program Overview

The Town of Middletown has a memorial tree program.  Requested Memorial Trees will be planted along the main entrance walkway in Valley Park.

Tree types must be selected from the species list provided. Links are also given that show representative pictures of mature versions of the trees. The planted tree will have a diameter of approximately 2 inches to 2.5 inches at chest height. Fees for the professional planting of the tree and for the casting of the plaque will be quoted by the Commission. The Tree Commission will then contract for the tree to be planted and the plaque to be cast.

Seasonal and weather issues control the planting of trees.
