Adopt or donate a tree

We will suspend a personalised stainless steel plaque, engraved with the words of your choice on the adopted or donated tree of your choice.

Swansea Council's 'Adopt a Tree' scheme is a great way to support and enjoy Swansea's parks and gardens in which many people enjoy time with their families.

A contribution towards the adoption of an existing tree or donation of a new tree is an ideal way to mark an important milestone, event, or to commemorate the life of a loved-one or pet.

The scheme offers the opportunity for business, organisations or individuals to have a personal and tangible place in one of our beautiful gardens, parks or leisure areas.

Adoption / donation details

Existing trees can be adopted for £200 for private customers and £240 for business or organisations (inclusive of VAT).

New trees can be donated for £300 for private customers and £360 for businesses or organisations (inclusive of VAT).

In recognition of the contribution we will suspend a personalised stainless steel plaque, engraved with the words of your choice, from the tree. The donation will fund and maintain the tree and the engraved plaque. Tree planting will usually be carried out during the months of January and February or when suitable conditions allow.

Trees under this scheme can only be donated or adopted on land owned by Swansea Council. We will accept adoption or planting in any park or area of leisure land. The limiting factors would be the species preferred and the space available which will be confirmed by Parks.

There are no further available sites for memorial trees or adopted trees at Clyne Gardens.
