Commemorative Grove Program

History: The City Council in its annual work program for 1988-89, called for a Donor Tree Planting Program. On February 7, 1989 this program was approved by the Council and the Commemorative Grove was dedicated at the Arbor Day celebration, March 4, 1989. A total of nine commemorative trees and thirty-eight windbreak trees were planted at this dedication.

Purpose of Program: This grove will allow the planting of trees by citizens or special interest groups who wish to commemorate some special event or person in their lives or significant events in the lives of the people of San Luis Obispo. These living monuments share special remembrance with present and future generations.

Location and Description: The location of the Commemorative Grove is on both sides of the entrance to Laguna Lake Park. This area is very visible and somewhat more protected from the wind than other areas of the park. Windbreak plantings are installed to protect the more sensitive commemorative trees. The walking and jogging trails will act as passageways through the grove. The windbreaks will be a series of tree lines with open glens featuring the commemorative tree plantings. The entrance to the Commemorative Grove features a monument and dedication plaque. A donor’s plaque will be placed at each commemorative tree identifying the donor and the commemorated person and or event. Local schools, California Conservation Corps, service clubs, youth organizations, general public, Tree Committee, City Council, and City staff will be invited to participate in the tree planting events. City staff will assist citizens in planting commemorative trees, fifteen gallon size or larger, in a planned location within the grove.
Location of the tree: Laguna Lake Park

Type of tree: Live Oak
