CelebriTree!

Trees are having a moment and so can you! 

The Friends of the Farm are pleased to offer the CelebriTree program that gives you a meaningful way to celebrate the special people and events in your life. With a donation of $1000, you will have a new tree planted in the Dominion Arboretum of the Central Experimental Farm, a Canadian National Historic Site, to acknowledge your special event or person.

Be a part of history

The trees in the Dominion Arboretum of the Central Experimental Farm are a living and evolving collection. Begun in 1889, when 200 trees and shrubs were planted, today there are more than 4,000 individual plantings and some 1,700 types of trees and shrubs from a wide range of climate zones and growing conditions. Demonstrating the entire tree lifespan from sapling, to established, heritage and century trees, their lives mark our landscape through the seasons and over the years.

Make a difference

Your donation adds a young new tree to enhance the collection, preserve green space and fight climate change, as well as further the Arboretum’s outreach and education objectives. It also assists the Friends of the Farm in our mission to preserve, protect, maintain and enhance the Dominion Arboretum, the Ornamental Gardens and other public areas of the Farm.

Each tree in this program is tagged with the species name and the person or event being celebrated. The tag also includes a QR code linking to the Friends of the Farm website where the viewer can learn more about the tree species and your special person or event. Donors receive a charitable donation tax receipt for the full donation amount.

CelebriTree trees are sponsored for a 10-year period and are not owned by donors. At the end of the initial 10-year period, donors will have the right of first refusal for a further 10-year donation of their sponsored tree.  These trees are offered to the program with the permission of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada whose expert staff are responsible for the selection, planting and maintenance of all trees on the Central Experimental Farm.

What you can expect to see…
Here is a sample tree tag that will be attached to your selected tree. The QR code will take visitors to your donor profile where they can read about your special individual or event and the donated tree.
