| Memorial Tree Program:
For your convenience, Catawba Island Township, in cooperation with Barnes Nursery and Crosser Monument Company, has established a memorial tree program. Now you can select a tree to be planted as a living memorial and personalize a marker to honor your loved one in our cemetery.
Barnes Nursery recommends shade trees such as Skyline Locust, Greenspire Linden and Maple varieties as well as ornamental trees including Crusader Hawthorn, Winter King Hawthorn and Crabapple varieties. All trees will have a 2" trunk diameter. The actual site and tree variety selection will be subject to Catawba Island Township Trustee approval. The cost for this living memorial is $250, plus tax, for the tree including labor. Variations could affect pricing.
Crosser Monument Company can create a bronze memorial marker for your tree. The 8" X 6" bronze plaque will be mounted into a flush concrete pad at the base of the tree. This size marker will allow for 48 letters of script. Cost of the 8" X 6" bronze marker is $168, plus tax.
To order a living memorial tree from Barnes Nursery, visit Jen Cook, Manager, at 1283 N.E. Catawba Road, Port Clinton, or call 419-797-9797. During the off season, please call the nursery in Huron (toll free) at 1-800-421-8722.
