A tree tribute can be for any occasion.  Above is the cover of the card. A Tree Tribute plants a 3-gallon shade tree.  For each $25, a card will be sent to each person you indicate that announces that a gift has been made to the TreesUpstate Living Legacy Fund and that a reforestation tree will be planted. Make a Tree Tribute donation.


Honorariums and Memorials

$200 donations made to TreesUpstate’s Living Legacy Fund plant a 15-gallon trees.  Living Legacy Trees planted are species that can live 100 years or more, such as a white oaks, black tupelo, tulip poplar or a southern magnolia.

Honor the life of someone special or celebrate a special occasion by planting a native tree. Honorarium and Memorial trees are watered and maintained for two years by staff, volunteers and site partners to ensure it lives for over 100 years.

A card (image below) will be mailed to the person of your choice letting them know you made this special living legacy gift.  To purchase a Living Legacy Tree, simply click here!

Where will my Living Legacy Tree be planted? Can I choose the location?

Your Living Legacy Tree will be planted where most needed.  Species selection and tree location are subject to the discretion of TreesUpstate’s Arborists and Community Forestry Team.

Can you tell me more about the tree and tree care?

$200 Honorariums and Memorials planted are 15 gallon container trees.  $25 Tree Tributes are 3-gallon trees.  The Living Legacy Tree donation level includes:  site selection and planning, tree planting, mulch and amendments, 2 years of watering, spring fertilization, and a one-year guarantee (if the tree fails within the first year because of a pest it will be replaced).

Can a tree marker be placed?

We are partnered with Greenville County Animal Care for plantings of trees with markers.  For an additional $50 a marker will be printed and installed that planting season.  We can only place markers at this site.

Can we plant the tree?

You can volunteer and plant the tree(s) with our staff during the tree planting at that site.  If this is a single tree being planted at Animal Care we will work with you to find a time and date within the planting season.

I am interested in placing a large order of Tree Tributes, is the internet the easiest way to place it?

You can order 3 Tree Tributes through our secure website. Please use “other” and enter donation amount.  Example:  3 Tree Tributes x $25 = $75.  You can enter additional recipient’s addresses in the “message to recipient” text box.  If you would like to place an order of 4 or more Tree Tributes, please contact Aaron Davis at or 864-884-2675 to coordinate details.

Can I make a dedication for other occasions besides a memorial?
