The Living Tree Program
Bath Township’s “Living Tree” program offers you a special way of establishing a natural remembrance of someone close to your heart or to commemorate a special event in your life, by planting a live tree on township property. A permanent dedication, a commemorative brass leaf plaque, will also be placed on the “Living Tree” display located in the Trustees Meeting Room at the Bath Township Center building.

There are numerous trees from which to choose. All were chosen due to their unique characteristics of flowers, fruit, bark texture and fall foliage. These trees have a tolerance to pests, stress, and disease. They are also resistant to deer and are indigenous to Ohio. Not every tree is suitable for all Bath properties due to size, soil condition or landscape design.

Please make a 1st and 2nd choice of tree then the location at which it is to be planted. (The reason for two choices is: that some locations have a design limit of each species; your first choice may not be available at time of purchase; or some species may not be suitable for your choice of location.)

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, one brass leaf plaque, and the engraving on the brass leaf. All trees are generally planted in the fall of each year when trees are dormant and there is less stress. Early spring is another option.
Please call Alan Garner, Parks Director at 330.666.4007 for further details or if you have any questions.
