“Stately Treasures” Reveal and Reception at the National Arboretum

The launch of Stately Treasures is just one more celebration the National Association of State Foresters is holding in honor of its 100th anniversary this year. Across the nation, state and territorial forestry agencies are celebrating their national association’s milestone with 100-themed, unique-to-them Centennial Challenges.

The National Arboretum’s Stately Treasures self-guided tour includes stops at the official “state trees” of all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We’ll be celebrating our state trees as part of the collection’s re-release: we hope you’ll join us.

From its start in 1990 as the Grove of State Trees until now, the Stately Treasures project has been a shared effort of the National Arboretum, the USDA Forest Service, and NASF. With considerable effort and planning since 2018, the Stately Treasures collection has truly become something to celebrate.

The Stately Treasures reveal and reception occurred on August 18, 2021 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm eastern.  Featured speakers included Vicki Christensen, U.S. Forest Service Chief and Joe Fox, NASF President and State Forester for Arkansas.
