LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — At a recent Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club meeting, Kitty Loberg and Suzanne Russell were awarded a Penny Pine Certificate for their special contributions to the garden club by Nora Gerrard, Penny Pines chair.

Anyone may donate to Penny Pines in memory, or in honor, of a person.

So far, the club has contributed 80 acres to the Penny Pines reforestation program.

If you wish to donate, please contact Penny Pines Chair Nora at 707-272-6885.

Under a conservation agreement, an individual or organization can contribute $68 toward the cost of planting seedlings on about one acre of National Forest land in California and receive a Penny Pines certificate.

Using the donation, together with federal funds, the Forest Service will do the planting on the National Forest of your choice.

The Penny Pines plantings are made as part of the regular National Forest reforestation program on burned-over and brush-covered areas which are potentially productive timberland.

Using these donations, combined with regular forest planting funds, millions of pine, fir, redwood and giant sequoia seedlings have been planted on acres of National Forest land in California.

The Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club is a member of the Mendo Lake District of the California Garden Club Inc. Pacific Region and National Garden Clubs, Inc.

The club welcomes new members and information can be found by visiting or call Ginny at 707-489-3511.
