Extension agents can provide information about local
Trees of Strength activities

While Trees of Strength is a statewide campaign, it will take on different dimensions in different counties: While providing county residents with the information they need to plant their own Trees of Strength, some Extension educators and Master Gardenerssm may also choose to plant trees at fire stations and police stations, others at schools or city halls.
