Tribute Tree donors give thousands for plantings to honour loved ones

The new program puts Tribute gifts toward native tree and shrub plantings where they are needed most on conservation lands in the Hamilton watershed.

The program, supported by Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home – Ancaster Chapel, recognizes those honoured with tribute gifts at the Beckett Living Forest in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area.

To date, the program has received tribute gifts honoring 43 individuals, generating over $15,000 in donations.

While the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the plantings that will be enabled by these donations, they are planned for Fifty Point CA, Dundas Valley CA with additional events to come as the pandemic improves.
