Plant a Troop or Family Tree!

Planting a tree is a fantastic educational activity for a family or a Girl Scout Troop. If you are interested in a free troop or family tree to plant, please fill out the following Google Form:

This could be a "troop tree," a place for memories and a future legacy!  A recent donation provides for trees to be purchased by Girl Scout families to plant in their back or front yard, who are willing to care for the tree--starting with watering weekly for three years.  Families approved to "get and grow a tree" will be notified by email, pick up the tree at Walter Andersen Nursery in Old Town when notified, follow instructions on how to plant a tree, and invite the troop to help enjoy this tree!
