Planting a tree is one way to establish a living memorial that will bring peace, joy and security for generations. Likewise, the planting of a tree can be a gratifying act, which honors the memory of a friend or relative, or recognizes a special person or occasion.
We will reach our 5 million tree goal with your help. Volunteer with us to plant more trees where you live, work, and play.

After planting your tree, remove the nursery stake, which is the thin pole tied to the tree. If the tree cannot stand upright by itself, support it by placing two stakes at least 18 inches from both sides of the trunk.
Spruce up your tree and prepare it for the hot summer months by checking its stakes and ties and removing weeds and adding mulch. A little extra care during this time will help your tree grow healthy and strong.
