You can make the world a more beautiful place, honor a loved one or organization or help create a living laboratory by taking part in a donor tree program. Patrick Murphy talks about the Illinois State University Donor Tree Program, and how you can find a donor tree program near you to put some roots in the ground and make the future a little greener.
*There are donor tree programs everywhere. The National Arbor Day Foundation has suggestions.
*Universities and municipalities and churches have these programs.
*You can honor a passed loved one or a new born baby. Or perhaps your group or organization can take up a collection to purchase a tree to donate to commemorate a favorite charity.
*Trees are tagged to note your generosity.
*If you live in an apartment or small space, you can use the donor program to add some greenery to your community.
*It's fun to come back from time to time and see how your tree has grown.
*A curator at the donor program can help you make a great choice of tree and find a place to plant it.
*Donor tree programs are available to all sorts of budgets -- you don't have to have a lot of green to plant some green!
