Hensler’s Nursery was one of five Indiana Tree Farms that participated in the Trees for Troops program this week.
Volunteers collected, prepared and loaded hundreds of donated trees onto FedEx trucks that will be delivered to bases in Kuwait and Afghanistan. The effort was completed at Dull’s Tree Farm in Thorntown.
The Trees for Troops program is part of FedEx Special Delivery, a nationwide program that provides transportation and logistical assistance for community and non-profit organizations. This year over 18,000 trees will be delivered to more than 60 military bases in the U.S. and overseas.
