Tree Dedication at Groves Hospital

Plant a Memory

Together with Grand River Agricultural Society (GRAS), we are planning a Memorial Forest along the path leading to the Cataract Trail, behind the hospital. GRAS have prepared the soil for planting and will be generously sponsoring the costs of landscaping & tree planting. 

This Spring, the planting of the new forest will take place and there will be a limited number of trees available with dedication plaques. Trees will be available for naming by new donation(s) of $3,500; funding vital equipment purchases at GMCH. This unique naming opportunity is available for the lifespan of the tree/plaque.  

Your tree will flourish and grow as a visible reminder of your generous support to all who visit the hospital for years to come.

  • Your tree can be named In Honour or In Memory of a loved one(s). This is a beautiful way to remember & celebrate a special someone who is no longer with you, enrich the environment, and support health care in your community.  
  • Your tree can be named after a family, person, or company. This will provide a lasting legacy showcasing your support of Groves.  
  • Your tree can be named in celebration of a milestone occasion or accomplishment in your life or the life of a family member; such as: a graduation, wedding, special anniversary, or birth. You can visit your tree to revisit this memory in the future. 

Your tree will beautify the hospital grounds and provide a peaceful place for patients, families, visitors, staff, & physicians to enjoy shade & natural scenery. Your plaque will remind others of your loved one, your family milestone, and/or your generous support of health care.  

There are 8 different types of trees being planting in Spring, each in very limited quantities: White Spruce, Black Cedar, White Pine, Colorado Spruce, White Cedar, Sugar Maple, Burr Oak, & American Basswood.

As the tree and landscaping costs have been generously sponsored by GRAS, your donation of $3,500* will fund vital equipment purchases at GMCH and cover the cost of your plaque. Your support will ensure our physicians & staff have the equipment and technology needed to continue to provide the best possible care to our patients, for years to come.  

*Your donation may be made in instalments
