Dedicated Trees and Groves

For generations, people have made lasting tributes, celebrated milestones, and honored time spent in beloved redwoods, by dedicating a tree or grove in honor, memory, or celebration of loved ones. These dedications have, in turn, supported our work, and we thank you. Sempervirens Fund has been honored to steward these dedications and tributes across the Santa Cruz Mountains, including at Big Basin.

Tributes will likely have been impacted by the fires. We will be able to make detailed assessments of over 8,000 tributes affected once it is safe for staff to enter the park. For the moment our focus is on supporting the efforts of park crews to make access into the park safe. When we can, we will be in touch with you about these special places. We appreciate your patience. Until then, please know that we are thinking of you.

Currently, you can honor someone by making a gift in their name and dedicate a tree or grove at Castle Rock State Park. By making a gift today you will support the increased need for restoring the redwood forest.

We look forward to meeting you under the redwoods.
