Over the years, the Manitoba Forestry Association (MFA) has received many inquiries about having a tree planted:
- in memory of a family member or friend
- to mark a special event such as a birthday or anniversary
- to recognize a particular accomplishment such as a graduation, or as a unique gift.
To meet these requests, the MFA developed the Commemorative Tree Planting Program.
- For a $25.00 donation to the MFA, a seedling tree is planted at the Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre (near Hadashville, MB) and the person’s name will appear on the Commemorative Tree Plaque inside the Museum.
- For a $250.00 donation to the MFA, a large White Spruce tree is planted at the Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre with a plaque beside the tree.
A tax receipt for the donation will be issued to the donor and an acknowledgement sent to the family or recipient.
