The Tree Hugger Program

Over the past 11 years, more than 1,800 Kwanzan Cherry trees have been planted on public land around Howard County.  Many of these trees are not feeling the love and are looking for a Tree-Hugger Sponsor.

Sponsorship includes naming rights on your individual tree with a personalized tree hugger plaque that wraps your tree with virtual arms, a certificate of participation, and a tax receipt.  

Sponsorships are $155, and trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Proceeds benefit the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center.  You can purchase them here.
