In 2011, the Village of Channahon opened the Memorial Tree Walk to provide an opportunity to memorialize family and friends by planting a tree in their memory. Each tree will be marked by a plaque indicating the type of tree, the person in whose memory the tree was planted and by whom. The tree then becomes a living tribute which will last for generations.
The second purpose of the Walk is to provide a place for residents to stroll down shaded paths and observe the growth habits of trees known to do well in our area. As the trees mature, the Walk will then become a small arboretum to be enjoyed by the public. The Village has set aside the northeast corner of the Channahon Municipal Center property for the Walk.
Currently, the Memorial Tree Walk is full. If future spots open we will once again open them up for planting.
