Statehood Project Uses Soil From Each County

Statehood Project Uses Soil From Each County

PLANKINTON, SD -

A Plankinton artist has come up with a unique way to help celebrate South Dakota's 125th anniversary of statehood, using dirt and trees.

Altman Studeny collected soil from each of the state's 66 counties and has planted 66 trees to be distributed back across the state.

Studeny spent two weeks in June traveling to each county and gathering soil in 5-gallon buckets. In each bucket he planted a bur oak, a tree that grows in each region of South Dakota and can live for centuries.

Studeny says he hopes the trees will grow to full height in time for the state's bicentennial, 75 years from now.

The trees currently are on display in Pierre, along a walking path near the state Capitol.
