Help Renfrew meet its mission of conserving and beautifying its historic farmstead grounds with native Pennsylvania species by supporting the Memorial Tree Program. Donor selects native species of tree of their choice (see below), sourced by Renfrew through Rockelman’s Heritage Tree Farm. Package includes a customized 8” x 3” bronze plaque (3-line maximum) mounted on a field stone from the Renfrew property. Location to be determined by Renfrew staff with input from the donor. We’ll coordinate with your family to schedule a tree-planting ceremony on a date most convenient for them. Renfrew cannot guarantee the tree in any way or provide specialized perpetual care, but will maintain it along with our other park trees. We will notify the family if the tree fails to thrive to allow for the option of replacement/replanting at the donor’s expense.
