MEMORIAL  TREE  DEDICATION

Every year the Dade City Garden Club and the City of Dade City partners to plant trees donated in honor and memory of dear friends and relatives. A plaque is inscribed and placed at the base of these trees. The City waters them for 30 days. We have planted a diverse selection over the years and look forward to our next planting.

We will be planting in early January and trees should be ordered by December 10th. Trees are available in 15gal containers for $65 which includes plaque  and planting. Trees are planted on City property on streets and parks. We plant crape myrtles, cedar, hollies, and oaks. All varieties are subject to availability. Special requests will be considered.
