Memorial/Heritage Tree and Bench Order Form
The City of Goodlettsville’s Parks and Recreation Department supports the Memorial/Heritage Tree and Bench Program to allow groups and individuals to donate trees and benches to commemorate special events, honor individuals or agencies, or as memorials to loved ones. These tributes are placed on city-owned park land. Trees and benches purchased through the program are planted and/or placed in city parks, trails, and playgrounds. Exact placement is at the discretion of the Parks and Recreation Department. More information can be found on our website
The cost of a donated bench within the program is $1,500 per bench. The criteria for the site list are based on bench needs for each park, as well as a determination of the maximum number of benches appropriate for each park.
For each bench donation, a memorial or heritage placard will be placed on the bench. This will include the type of donation, a short inscription, and the year of donation.

Cost of a donated tree within the program is $300 per tree. This includes the tree and planting, plaque, and continued maintenance of the tree (fertilizer, pruning, mulching, etc.). Trees ordered will be high-quality 30 gallon, which is 8-12 feet tall, and 2” caliper. Trees ordered from April 1 through October 15 will be planted in the late fall. Trees ordered from October 16 through March 31 will be planted in the spring.
For each tree donation, a Memorial Tree Plaque or a Heritage Tree Plaque will be placed at the base of the tree. These plaques will be a standard 4”x4” size and will describe the type of donation, a short inscription, and the type of tree and dedication year. Parks and Recreation is not responsible for damaged, vandalized, or stolen markers. These must be replaced at cost by the donor.
