Planting Partnership Offers Opportunity to Plant Memorial Trees at Kent StatePosted Mar. 11, 2013
Kent State University faculty, staff, students, alumni and parents can leave their mark at the university by planting a memorial tree on campus through the Planting Partnership. The program offers a wide variety of trees and ornamentals from which to choose.
These living memorials are available for all to see and enjoy around the university – and even online, especially appealing to remote visitors.
Heather White, grounds manager at University Facilities Management, moved the program to an online format to meet high demands of those who do not live near campus.
“We get a number of requests from graduates and parents associated with Kent State who don’t live locally, and through the electronic version they can see the sponsored tree,” says White.
The Planting Partnership’s website contains links to a sponsorship form and campus map displaying tree locations complete with photographs and sponsorship details.
“I have heard from donors, and they all seem to really like the idea of living memorials,” White says. “I try to make it very easy to navigate and I’m here as a resource for finding the best location and tree species.”
Purchasing a memorial not only pays for the cost of the tree, but provides regular maintenance, such as fertilizing, watering and pruning. In the event that the tree dies prematurely, a replacement will be planted.
Additionally, a commemorative certificate recognizes the gift.
