The Living Legacy Tree Program offers individuals an opportunity to honor a loved one by purchasing a tree to be planted within J.R. Martin Park. These trees serve as a long-lasting, living remembrance that will also benefit the community for many years to come. Additionally, trees can be purchased simply as a donation to the park.
Trees are available for a donation of $150. A 6”x6” honorary plaque is also available to purchase for an additional $100. The plaque will be placed next to the tree when planted.
Trees purchased September 1 - January 31 will be planted the following spring. Trees purchased February 1 - August 31 will be planted in the fall. Each tree will be included in the City of Republic’s tree maintenance program.
A variety of trees are available. Selection and additional details can be found on the Living Legacy Tree Program Order Form. Forms are available at the Republic Community Center and online in the link below.
Trees will be planted within J.R. Martin Park located at 300 E. Hines Street. The donated tree will be included in the tree watering program. If the tree happens to die, we will replace it one (1) time during a period of three (3) years. If a tree dies and needs to be replanted, it may be planted at a different location during the next planting phase to ensure better growth. Please note that broken branches or the natural shape of the tree are not considered reasons for replacement. The optional plaques will be the financial responsibility of the donor, and will only be replaced upon request and after payment of a replacement plaque is received.
