One-Hundred Tree Challenge

The Campaign for Campus Beautification

100 Tree ChallengeThe Daemen One-Hundred Tree Challenge—the College’s adopt-a-tree campaign will transform the Daemen campus grounds into a beautiful green space, not only for the Daemen family but for the Amherst community at large.

The vision is to plant 100 mature trees and manicured areas according to a professionally designed landscaping plan. Should you wish, an engraved brick may identify your name or the name of someone you wish to honor (yourself, a spouse, a friend, a deceased relative) on each adopted tree. We are also offering the option to purchase a decorative stone bench which may be designated in honor of someone as well.


Each tree may be adopted at the price of $199; a fraction of the actual cost. We are able to offer this artificially low price thanks to the generosity of some of our donors. In addition, the stone bench can be purchased for $600. Join the adoption campaign today!
