The Fund is dedicated to planting trees, providing education on the care of trees, and the on-going beautification of our community.

Over a 50-year lifetime, a tree generates $31,250 worth of oxygen, provides $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycles $37,500 worth of water, and controls $31,250 worth of soil erosion. (USDA Forest Service Pamphlet #R1-92-100) Total: $162,000 — quite a return on a $750 investment! We have a downloadable brochure (in PDF format) that has all the information you need on ordering, planting, and caring for your tree.

Thank you for visiting!
