The Township of Zorra Memorial Tree Program was established in 1995 by the Zorra Cemetery Committee and Council in co-operation with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) and various funeral directors in the immediate area.
Memorial trees are planted at various public locations throughout the Township, including parks, cemeteries, etc., where they can benefit the greatest number of people.
Planting takes place annually at a pre-selected and approved site made in consultation with the UTRCA. A donation may be arranged through the Township of Zorra or one of the participating funeral directors. The name of the deceased will be published in the “Memorial Tree Dedication Record”.
The current cost of having a memorial tree planted is $40.00. Cheques must be made payable to the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, along with the name(s) of the individual(s) being memorialized. An income tax receipt will be issued by the UTRCA.
