Low Cost Trees Available

An organization called Fourth Grade Foresters has worked for the last nine years with Lions Clubs, natural resource conservation districts, city tree boards, and local business owners across the county in an effort to connect them with the fourth grade classes in their local elementary schools.  They sponsor a tree for each fourth grader to take home and plant on Arbor Day. Since 2006, over 700,000 trees have been planted.

This year, for the first time, there is a surplus of trees available; Fourth Grade Foresters is seeking to get them into the hands of anyone willing to plant and care for them.  In an effort to get these trees planted and hopefully recover a portion of the cost, each tree is being sold for $1.00 plus shipping and anyone ordering 100 will get an extra 50 trees FREE.  They will be shipped immediately via FedEx and the shipping cost is around $15.00 for 150 trees.
