'Tribute trees' offered

A "Tribute Tree," sponsored by the Friends of the Parks and Trails of St. Paul and Ramsey County, may be the most thoughtful and stress-free gifts you can give this season.

A "Tribute Tree" is given in honor of someone and planted by park staff in any Ramsey County park, as well as city parks in Arden Hills, Blaine, Brooklyn Park, Little Canada, Maplewood, Mendota Heights, New Brighton, North St. Paul, Roseville, St. Louis Park, St. Paul, Shoreview, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake, White Bear Township or Woodbury.

Trees cost $100 each; three can be given for $250. A hand-stamped card will be sent to your gift recipient from the Friends to announce the honor; next summer, after the trees are planted, the Friends will sent a map to the recipient showing the tree's location.

To see the tree species preferred by each community for its parks and to find out more about the program, go to www.friendsoftheparks.org or call 651-698-4543.
