Adopt-A-Tree Program

In order to help care for the Trees On the Camp Property, we have an Adopt A Tree Program.

For those interested in our Adopt A Tree Program, the following description outlines how the Trees may be cared for."

Thank you for adopting a tree on our property in Cherry Valley, Illinois! We appreciate your dedication and commitment to our grounds and our mission. The goal of the Adopt-A-Tree program is to beautify our property while making landscaping an easier and communal process.

The following guidelines are in place to honor both the tree and surrounding land and the vast creativity of the human spirit. In careful consideration of these elements, the Cherry Valley Spiritualist Camp Board of Directors respectfully asks adopters to adhere to the following:

*Under no circumstances should nails or screws of any kind be placed into the tree.
*Trees should remain uncut and untrimmed, including the roots.
*Edging and mulching are acceptable, but if there is a question, please ask a CVSC board member.
*Leave a breathing space of about 1 inch between the bottom of the trunk and the mulch/wood chips.
*Use burlap, newspaper, brown paper bags, or another biodegradable material to place underneath mulch/wood chips. Absolutely no plastic.
*Use of wood posts or metal fencing in mulched area around the tree is acceptable so long as the roots are unharmed.
*Use canvas straps or fishing line to hang items from branches.
" Check in with your tree regularly, weather permitting, to ensure decorations remain in place and your tree is happy and healthy.

   
 

Maintenance is required from time-to-time, especially during spring and fall.
*Have fun and be imaginative! This is an opportunity to express your individual relationship with Spiritualism and the spirit world.

Again, we are grateful you've chosen to adopt a tree, and we look forward to seeing what you do with yours! If you have any questions, please contact a board member.
