Be a Giant - Make HAF Part of Your Legacy

Dawn_Redwood_for_inventory_page.jpgRedwoods (Sequoiadendron giganteum) are the world’s tallest trees and can live for hundreds - even thousands - of years. Their role is critical in building a protective canopy that nurtures the surrounding ecosystem and helps it to thrive. Redwood trees are among the world’s treasures.

Like redwoods, there are many people who support and nurture Hoyt Arboretum by giving of their time, talent and treasure. These include our Sequoia Legacy Society members who have named Hoyt Arboretum Friends as a beneficiary in their planned giving.  If you have included HAF in your estate plans, we would like to hear from you so you can be recognized as a Sequoia Legacy Society member.

Visit the Redwood Collection here at the arboretum and be inspired to be one of the giants whose gift can support HAF for many years to come. If you would like to include Hoyt Arboretum Friends in your estate plans, or have already done so and would like to be recognized as a Sequoia Legacy Society member, please contact Peggie Schwarz at 503.823.1648 or peggie.schwarz@portlandoregon.gov.

Thank you for your important gift that serves as a promise to future generations of tree stewards.
