Tree & Bench Memorials

The City of Marshalltown welcomes the donation of trees and park benches (PDF). These generous donations will grace our public spaces for decades while providing a unique opportunity to honor a special person or to mark a notable event. The planting of the tree or placement of the bench will be done by parks staff. The City will assume continued maintenance.

Iowa Community Tree Inventory

In 2015 a Sustainable Community Forestry Assistance and Training Grant received which allowed volunteers to be trained in identification to complete a tree inventory. View a map of the tree inventory of Iowa and zoom in to view Marshalltown.
