Enclosed in a shrub border of Viburnum prunifolium (known as Blackhaw viburnum), which is a great native species, the garden features a double row of 28 European Hornbeam trees (Carpinus Betulus “Fastigiata”) trees lining a walkway that borders a large grass rectangular lawn.
Memorial benches are positioned amid trees for seating.
The meandering South Street Walk between the Contemplation Garden and the Library’s front entrance is enhanced with Specimen Trees.
The Contemplation Garden is also a place of repose and thought that offers a beautiful way to memorialize a family member or friend. Garden trees may be sponsored for $1000.
Each sponsored tree will be designated with a 3-inch by 5-inch heavy brass engraved marker.
Of the nine Specimen Trees designed for the Library’s South Street Walk, two are available for sponsorship at a cost of $1500 each:
1. Magnolia “Elizabeth”
2. White Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus)
For more information or to discuss arrangements for your choice of a Memorial Tree, or a Specimen Tree, please speak with Valerie Annis, Library Director at 860-350-2181.
Thank you for your interest.
