ONU Memorial Tree or Bench Donation Form
The planting of trees or placement of a bench is a long-standing tradition to commemorate loved ones or members from our academic community. Whatever the reason, trees, benches and similar memorials are a valued addition to our campus.
Planning ahead is an important part of donating a tree or bench to the ONU campus. Facilities management needs several weeks advance notice to coordinate the location of a bench or to plant a tree. The location for a bench or tree is determined by The V. P. for University Advancement working with the facilities team. The tree variety that can be planted is determined by the department chair for biological and allied health sciences.
