Memorial Trees



Thank you for your interest in JSC's Memorial Tree Program.  Your thoughtful memorial will ensure that your loved one remains honored at JSC for years to come.

Survivors or other interested parties may request permission to plant a tree on the Johnson Space Center’s (JSC) property in a memory of a deceased:

  • Current or former NASA employee or contractor
  • Immediately family member (spouse or children) of a current or former NASA employee or contractor
  • Individual who has made noteworthy contributions to the space program approved by Center management

Memorial trees will no longer be planted in the employee grove at JSC. Trees will now be planted at the Gilruth Center. Trees may be requested at any time, but will only be planted from October through February to maximize survivability. 

The fee for memorial trees includes the tree, marker, delivery, and installation and is payable in advance.

Please contact Holly Bundick at or 281-483-9426 for more information.
