Commemorative trees

Commemorative tree

Each green space inevitably has a different focus, and indeed service it can offer, due to their varying landscapes.


As Elvaston Castle Country Park is Grade II* listed by English Heritage, being recognised as being of historic importance or significance, our focus is to gradually re-place (like-for-like) some of the prominent historic trees that have been lost to stormy weather, natural decline or disease.

Wherever possible, our aim is to follow the planting schemes of William Barron, who originally laid out the gardens in the 18th century.

If you would like to commemorate an important event whether a birthday, engagement, marriage, or to remember the passing of a loved one, Elvaston can offer you the opportunity of having a commemorative specimen tree planted within this historic park.

Trees are generally planted between October and March (weather conditions permitting) and are limited in number each year.
