National Arbor Day Foundation Introduces New Program

Nebraska City, Neb.--The National Arbor Day Foundation is introducing a program that helps replant national forests while letting people commemorate important events with the gift of trees.

Through the Trees In Celebration program, 10 trees will be planted in the Targhee National Forest for every $10 donated to the Arbor Day Foundation. The program is designed to reforest areas that have been destroyed by fire, disease, and other natural causes. The Foundation will also send a gift certificate to the person being honored or to the donor for personal presentation.

"Trees In Celebration allows people today to benefit the lives of future generations," said John Rosenow, president of The National Arbor Day Foundation. Events commemorated can include birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, retirements, Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, and holidays.

Additional information is available by writing The National Arbor Day Foundation, Attn: Trees In Celebration, 211 N. 12th Street, Lincoln, NE 68508, or by calling the Foundation at 402-474-5655. The Foundation is a nonprofit education organization dedicated to tree planting and environmental stewardship.
