Tribute Gifts

Commemorate a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or remember a loved one by making a gift in their honor to the Arboretum. Gifts can be made in any amount. Please specify in the notes section who the gift is in honor of, in addition to a mailing address if you would like us to notify them or their family of your gift.



Celebrate the life of someone special with a tree dedication. A donation of $2,500 will provide for the dedication of a tree from our existing collections and ensure the Arboretum’s continued growth for future generations. Your tree dedication includes a personalized recognition plaque for the natural life of the tree. Click HERE, for more information on the tree dedication process. For assistance in selecting a tree, please call the Development Office at (626) 821-3237.

Tree Dedication Donation


A bench dedication offers a wonderful place to rest and reflect while enjoying the beautiful Arboretum grounds. For a donation of $20,000, a donor can work with Arboretum staff to find a suitable location for a tribute bench. Each teak bench, expected to last 25 years, includes an attached brass plaque engraved with two lines of 30 characters each. For information about available bench locations, please call the Development Office at (626) 821-3237.
