Each spring and fall, trees are purchased and planted around Kingsport on public lands using donations from those who contributed to the Tree Fund in honor or remembrance of a special individual.
The Tree Fund began in 1986. Since then, well over 800 trees have been planted within the community, and thousands of people have been recognized through the program. Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Homes have sponsored the program for 32 years. Keep Kingsport Beautiful coordinates the Tree Fund program, while the city of Kingsport provides the labor and maintenance.
For more information on how you can honor or remember someone special through a contribution to the Tree Fund, contact Robin Cleary at 392-8814 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
