From the exotic monkey puzzle tree (Araucaria araucana) to the endangered cloud forest magnolia (Magnolia sharpii), the UC Botanical Garden is home to an important and diverse collection of trees. Remember a loved one or commemorate a special event by becoming a guardian of one of these Garden icons for ten years. Your tree adoption will fund a new interpretive panel for your tree, enabling the Garden to share its history and conservation significance with thousands of Garden visitors. You will receive a personal dedication on the panel and the pleasure of making a significant contribution to environmental education and conservation.
Tree adoptions start at $10,000, are fully tax deductible and may be applied towards University class gifts and giving societies.
