We own a number of prominent parks and gardens that are popular for the planting of memorial trees or the placing of memorial benches.

Memorial Benches and Sponsor A Bench

We are not currently able to accept any further applications for either new or sponsored benches. 

Memorial Trees

  • Commemorative or dedicated trees can be placed in many of the South Hams Council owned parks and green spaces to commemorate a loved one or special occasion
  • There may be an opportunity to hold a memorial planting ceremony if you wish to
  • The type of tree and planting location requires the agreement of the Natural Environment & Recreation Team, in order to ensure that proposals meet with the Council's own management and maintenance plans
  • The cost is £250 (inc VAT), which covers the purchase of the tree, stake and other planting accessories. The price also includes a plaque, and follow up maintenance, although not a replacement should the tree fail in any way.
  • To apply for a memorial tree please download and complete the application form on the right
