[DNR] Join the Indiana Tree Project’s third annual planting, April 29
Start Date: 4/29/2014Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 4/29/2014

Event Description
The public can participate in the Indiana Tree Project’s third annual tree planting on April 29 at Ravinia Woods at Morgan-Monroe State Forest.

The event starts at 10 a.m. Organizers expect to plant 8,000 to 10,000 trees on 10 to 12 acres, according to Bourke Patton, executive director of the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation (INRF).

“In just three years The Indiana Tree Project has helped plant more than 30 acres of trees,” Patton said. “These trees and the land they are planted on are a gift from our generation to future generations of Hoosiers.”

The Indiana Tree Project is a joint effort between the INRF, the DNR Forestry Division, and the citizens and businesses of Indiana. The project is dedicated to expanding Indiana’s native hardwood forests by planting 1 million new trees by 2016 to mark the bicentennial anniversary of Indiana statehood.

A $10, tax-deductible donation to the Indiana Tree Project covers all costs to plant one tree that will last for generations. The program not only plants trees but also acquires new public land. As one acre is planted a new acre is permanently protected through acquisition.

“Trees clean our air, protect our water, help wildlife, prevent soil erosion, provide places for recreation and relaxation while supporting Indiana’s largest agricultural industry,” said John Seifert, director of DNR Forestry. “The Indiana Tree Project has helped the Division of Forestry restore our native forests, buy land, and is making Indiana a better place.”

The Indiana Natural Resources Foundation asks participants to register by April 25 by emailing TheIndianaTreeProject@dnr.IN.gov or by calling (317) 234-7718 with their name, phone number, email and the number of adults and children attending. Registered participants will receive a confirmation with driving directions to the planting site.

The event is weather dependent. If the planting is delayed registered participants will be contacted with an alternate date.
