to Get Involved
In remembrance of those who died in the Sept. 11,
2001 terrorist attacks, Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners
encourage North Carolinians to plant memorial Trees of Strength.
Trees planted at public and private sites will serve as a living
memorial to the more than 6,000 people who died and will honor
those who protect and defend our country.
Local county centers of North Carolina Cooperative
Extension are supporting the effort by providing information on
selecting and planting nursery trees appropriate for different regions
of the state. Master Gardener volunteers will register all trees
planted through the Trees of Strength program.
As these young trees grow strong, they will stand
for many years to come as a tribute to America's strength. Groups
and individuals are invited to participate by planting trees at
their homes, schools, businesses and where they worship. Master
Gardeners are coordinating efforts to plant trees at fire and
