“This is a great opportunity, at an unbelievable price, to introduce trees to your children,” said Trees Indiana Executive Director Carol Cavell. “It also is a great price for adults to plant some beautiful native Indiana trees”.

Trees Indiana is a nonprofit youth education organization whose mission is to inspire and educate Indiana’s youth to become stewards who plant, protect, and maintain their community trees. The goal is a simple but important one, to connect kids with nature.

Trees Indiana’s signature program, NeighborWoods TreeKeepers, targets underserved youth that helps develop a sense of civic responsibility through service-learning projects. Over 2,000 youth will be reached in 2011.

Trees Indiana was founded in 2006 and this will be the 5th annual Tree Sale. All proceeds from the sale will directly benefit Trees Indiana programs.
