Trees of Strength
Master Gardeners throughout the state and country are invited to participate. The goal is to plant a tree in memory of each life lost, as well as to honor those who protect and defend.
Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will provide educational materials and programs to assist in proper tree selection, planting and maintenance for those wishing to participate in Trees of Strength.
All trees planted as a part of the program will be identified through the tying of a red, white and blue ribbon to a lower branch. Other identifying materials, such as plaques, may also be placed near the trees.
To receive an information packet with a listing of suggested trees, proper planting and care instructions and a card to be returned for registration, contact:
The Trees of Strength campaign will continue through Arbor Day, March 15, 2002. For a schedule of upcoming events and educational programs, contact Erv Evans or go to the following Web site: http://www.treesofstrength.org
