Living Tree Program

Bath Township offers an opportunity for residents to commemorate a special event or to remember a loved one by having a tree planted on township property. A commemorative brass leaf plaque will also be placed on the bronze “Living Tree” located at the Bath Township Trustees’ Meeting Room. The cost for a “Living Tree” is $200 per tree. This includes the tree of your choice, installation of the tree, proper care and maintenance, and one engraved brass leaf plaque.

This is a good time to honor someone with a tree. Trees purchased now will be used in the new Heritage Corridors of Bath Wayside Exhibit being planned along Cleveland-Massillon Road just north of Ghent. The trees will be planted in fall.

October 18th is the last day to purchase a tree that will be planted this year.
