Stones & Leaves

Acrylic Tree Tops
The tops of all Saxtons Donor Recognition Trees are fabricated from ¼” thick clear acrylic sheet. The acrylic is predrilled and tapped to accept the small brass machine screws that attach the leaves to the tree top.
Optional materials for the tree tops include solar bronze and solar gray acrylic tops (“smoked” acrylic) in the following shades:
- #2539 Solar Bronze
- #2514 Solar Gray
- All Saxtons Donor Recognition Trees are designed for interior use only.
- If the recognition program is underway prior to ordering the tree, we can ship all or some of the leaves in advance. That way, the leaves may be engraved and returned to us for attachment to the tree.
- All trees are shipped in wood crates because of their weight and size. For estimated shipping costs, please allow 300 lbs. as an average crated weight.
