Honour a loved one with a memorial tree
A memorial tree is an incredible way to honour the passing of a loved one, while contributing to the natural beauty of the Coutts Centre.
Our Memorial Tree program is a customizable opportunity to make a lasting memory.
In consulation with our horticulturist, we will help you select the tree of your choice (avg. cost $300). We encourage you to make the day special with a picnic lunch or small ceremony. Access to our kitchen and indoor space available at no extra cost.
*Please note that plaques or permanent sigange is not permitted.

Potential Tree Options:
- Elm trees have been our best performing tree on the property.
- Elms are large shade trees.
- Planting spots could be at the end of the path on the quilt blanket path or by the Chicken house where we need to replace a couple of Ornamental Apple trees.
Ornamental and Native Fruit Trees and Shrubs Orchard
- Install Native trees and shrubs where Ornamental Apple trees need to be replaced.
- Chokecherry, Saskatoons and Pin Cherry are native plants that come to mind.
- Annually we add Pine & Spruce trees to the North end of the Garden Venue.
- This project will only become more valuable with the passage of time much like the Evergreen memorial parks in Calgary.
- We have started building an Aspen grove for a windbreak in our Events space but also to protect the gardens, lawns and trees from winter kill.
- Aspen groves are native to our region.
