Chequamegon-Nicolet N.F. Plant-A-Tree Program
Plant-A-Tree Program on the Chequamegon-Nicolet
Recognize your loved ones with a gift to the natural resources
The Chequamegon-Nicolet NF is a participant in the Forest Service Plant-A-Tree program. This program allows individuals to recognize the memory of a loved one who has passed away or recognize special occasions such as an anniversary, wedding, birthday, retirement, etc., with a gift to the National Forest to plant trees. Each donation goes into the general reforestation fund for the forest, and is used annually on the Chequamegon-Nicolet to supplement the spring tree planting efforts.
For a minimum donation of $10.00, enough to plant three to five seedlings, the contributor will receive a certificate that recognizes the contribution to the Plant-A-Tree program and has a space where the person's name is added, identifies the reason for the commemorative event, and is signed by an official from the US Forest Service. A tree and an explanation of the program are also included on the certificate.
The trees are planted on general forest land and are not designated on the ground as a memorial. They are planted for multiple-use purposes. This year, tree planting on the Chequamegon-Nicolet took place mostly in areas affected by spruce decline and in the area impacted by the Quad County Tornado in 2007.
Plant-A-Tree requests may be submitted by mail by using the donation form . It also list the mailing address.
