The trees will be planted and maintained by City of Selma Cemetery Department staff along with Cemetery Preservation Group staff and volunteers. During the establishment period (approximately three years), Cemetery Preservation Group volunteers will closely inspect, monitor and maintain the trees, replacing any that are damaged or dead.
You will receive the following: 1 Live Oak Tree, approximately 10 ft tall, planted in any of the 3 city owned cemeteries in Selma with a customized 4″x 6″ bronze, in-ground plaque, a certificate, and a photo of the tree and plaque.
