The City of Athens has a Celebration Tree program to honor a person or event (also known as a memorial tree). There is an application and fee process – this goes through the City Code Office. There is an application fee of $100. The City determines where the tree will be planted and will plant, place a placard, and commit to maintaining the tree for 3 years.
For more information and to request an application, call the Code Office at 740-592-3306 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
