December 20th, 2011 — Tree Lafayette Endowment at the Community Foundation
Tree Lafayette Endowment — Our urban forest will always need help. Urban trees attempt to live in a very hostile environment. Urban trees face cars, salt, dogs, man, bicycles, pests, diseases, oil, severe competition for water, nutrients, and oxygen. We will always raise funds yearly but to replace those trees that succumb to many of these stresses, we created an endowment with the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette. We will need to replace 385 trees a year and give generously yearly to CFGL.  Please make out checks to Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, 1114 State Street, Lafayette, In. 47905 and in the memo:  TreeLafayette Endowment.
