Living Legacy Program
The City Of Grapevine’s Living Legacy Program has been designed to beautify Grapevine and promote the recognition of individuals or organizations through the planting of trees. This program invites you to recognize the accomplishments of an individual, group, organization, celebrate a birthday, anniversary, promotion, graduation or memorialize a loved one. A variety of species are offered that grow well in Grapevine. Varieties available include, but not limited to, Red Oak, Lacebark Elm, Live Oak and Chinese Pistache. The purchaser also has the option to choose from many locations within the City of Grapevine to have a tree planted. To ensure the best possible growth and survival, the Grapevine Parks department will plant a minimum 2" caliper tree. Along with the planted tree, a permanent stone marker, which is custom etched with information the purchaser provides, will be placed at the base of the tree. A maximum of 45 characters are allowed on the stone. The cost of each tree, professional planting, permanent placement of the custom etched stone marker, a framed certificate and permanent recognition on the Community Living Legacy Board is $400.  Contact Sasha Haverkamp for more information.

Over 20 areas have been adopted throughout the City through this citizen involvement program. Generous organizations and families from around the City have adopted parks, traffic medians, playgrounds, streets, and trails. The primary requirement of this program is to collect litter at least six times per year in the adopted area. Some groups provide weeding, trimming, planting or other services as needed within their area. For this, a sign with the groups name on it is posted near their adopted area. Contact Cindy Harris for more information.

Tree Sharing Program
This is a joint program between the Parks & Recreation Department and Grapevine Homeowners in "sharing" the cost, 50/50, of up to two trees per household, planted in the homeowner's yard within the city's right-of-way. The cost includes the tree, delivery, and planting along with a six month, one time replacement guarantee. Tree Sharing opens in the fall and will continue until all trees are sold. Registration takes place at the Grapevine Municipal Service Center, 501 Shady Brook Drive. Contact Mike Hooker for more information.

Tree City USA
This past year, 2015 marks the 29th year of TREE CITY USA certification for Grapevine, as awarded by the National Arbor Day Foundation. This certification is awarded to Cities that develop and maintain comprehensive urban forestry programs. The trees, planted in many different locations throughout the City, offer sources of natural beauty, increased property values, reduce noise and air pollution, and lower utility bills.
