Trees From Statehood Project Going Out To Counties

August 29, 2014, 6:28 AM

Trees growing in soil collected from all 66 South Dakota counties will be delivered to sites across the state in the next two weeks.

The project is aimed at helping celebrate South Dakota's 125th anniversary of statehood this year. It was spearheaded by Plankinton artist Altman Studeny.

He collected the soil from each county in June, mixed it together, and planted the bur oaks. The tree grows in each region of South Dakota and can live for centuries.

The trees have been on display in Pierre, along a walking path near the state Capitol. Gov. Dennis Daugaard says they'll now be delivered to historic sites in each county.
