Commemorate the birth, marriage, or memory of your loved one.

VanDusen Botanical Garden has many beautiful trees available for adoption. The VBGA’s Adopt-a-Tree program provides an opportunity for you to form a personal relationship with a tree that has a special meaning for you.

Adopting a tree at VanDusen creates a special bond to deepen your connection to nature

For each adoption, a plaque will be placed on your chosen tree with the name of your loved one and a short message.

Start or renew your adoption by making a charitable donation today. Click here and select the option for ‘Adopt A Tree Payment’.

“This,” says Jan, opening her arms to the Garden, “is a place of vitality, growth, transformation. The trees are a living memorial — a way for us to have a living relationship with people who are no longer physically present.”
