Friends of Alta Memorial Tree Planting


Each summer Friends of Alta hosts a day of planting trees for people interested in planting a memorial tree in honor of a loved one. We operate on a first come first serve basis and these trees will be acquired upon request. Each tree will be about 2 feet tall – due to the remote location of these plantings bigger trees are simply not feasible because all equipment is carried to/from the planting site. Participants of this program will receive photographic documentation of the planting and approximate location in case you want to visit the tree. Requests for planting location will be considered, however we may not be able to meet all requests. Since these trees are being planted at elevation levels above 8,000 feet in a national forest we cannot assure the survival of your tree, but we will take all best practice precautions to give your tree a healthy start.

Our next planting date is: September 13, 2019 9:30 am – 12 pm. We will meet in the parking lot outside the Albion Day Lodge.

Volunteers are greatly appreciated at our Memorial Tree Planting. Please email us to let us know you’re planning to come.

Please contact with any questions you may have.

Tree Donation: $300.00 These trees are being planted on our public lands and serve a recognized benefit to the greater community so your contribution for a tree is 100% tax deductible. If you are interested in having others help with the contribution for a tree, we are able to accept a collection of donations in memory of someone as a contribution for the tree.
