The Tree Legacy Program provides a way for you to invest in the future of Shreveport by planting trees. Donations may be made in any amount and will be combined with other contributions to purchase trees to be planted on public lands in our community. Individual tree memorials can be facilitated. These special projects include a large tree and plaque.
We at Shreveport Green believe in planting trees for posterity. They enrich our lives emotionally and physically. They make our homes more valuable and our cities more liveable. Communities that value their urban forests have discovered the economic benefits of such a program. Cities beautifully planted with trees are more likely to attract new businesses and are more appealing to tourists. Trees are good for business.
We have a purpose in structuring the Tree Legacy Program around definite projects. By concentrating our efforts on a specific site each year, we are better able to make a significant visual impact on the community, while streamlining the maintenance responsibilities. A new site is selected annually.
This program offers a unique opportunity for you to honor or remember a special person by making a contribution to the Tree Legacy Program. In addition to memorials, suggestions for donations include the birth of a child, holidays, anniversaries and even a "thank you" to a guest speaker. Past projects include the Shreveport Regional Airport (1993) and Marie Hamel Park (1994), and Bayou Pierre (2002).
