The Tree Planters' Tribute

This slate is being created to give tribute to everyone who plants trees, from the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Depression and the professional men and women who follow the planting contracts to the community volunteer organizations and corporations who have sponsored tree planting programs across the nation. The slate depicts the process of tree planting in a forest scene showing the cycle of life from seedlings to an old growth forest.

Tree planters work from predawn to dusk, in all types of weather and terrain. Quietly and rhythmically they labor to replant the forests that provide us with the comforts and necessities of living. Trees also provide beauty, clean air, water, shade and habitats for wildlife, and will be enjoyed by generations to come.
