On Saturday, October 26, American Heritage Trees partnered with the Margaret Gaston Chapter of the DAR to host an Open House for Chapters of the DAR within Tennessee. Despite the dismal weather, the Open House was a big success. The event was attended by approximately 30 DAR members, representing nine Chapters of the DAR. Attendees had an opportunity to visit with members of other DAR Chapters while enjoying refreshments. American Heritage Trees also conducted tours of the greenhouses, where members could observe first- hand how trees were grown, starting from seeds of the various historic Mother trees. Many DAR members bought trees for themselves, as well as trees for their Chapter. The Chapter trees purchased will be planted in accordance with the State Regent’s project for each of the 90+ DAR Chapters in Tennessee to plant at least one tree per year.
American Heritage Trees would like to express our gratitude to all DAR attendees and especially the Margaret Gaston Chapter for their support of these special historic trees. Together we will preserve the legacy of the trees and the legacy of the special person, place or event they represent.
