Ohio State Capitol Liberty Tree Planting
The Providence Forum, in collaboration with Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund) and their annual Tour de Trees (bicycle tour fundraising event)sponsored by Davey Tree Expert Company, has once again planted a Liberty Tree at a State capitol. This past August, a tree was planted and given the Tour des Trees’ blessing in Columbus, the capitol of Ohio. The special addition for this planting was the introduction of the Liberty Tree exhibit in the museum on the ground floor of the capitol building. This exhibit tells the history of the Liberty Tree and its significance as a place of gathering for and a symbol of America’s battle for liberty. The Providence Forum is grateful for the relationship it has with the TREE Fund and their willingness to plant these symbols of our nation’s heritage of freedom and liberty. We are excited about potential plantings for next year that will take the riders through Tennessee and Kentucky!
