Tree Dedications

Trees represent so many aspects of life. That’s why they are the perfect natural way to honor beloved people and memorable events. Van Cortlandt Park has more than 80,000 trees to choose from. Van Cortlandt’s exceptional woodlands act as lungs for New York City – the trees absorb tremendous amounts of carbon dioxide and generate oxygen. Our trees provide shade for families to enjoy, and beauty for us to admire.

If you share our reverence for trees, you can make a dedication to plant a new tree or sponsor an existing one. Your gift will help preserve this unique urban forest. We will work with you on selecting a tree type and location from the options below. To get started, send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
