His love of trees

The only requirements Stan had when donating trees with links to famous persons or places is that the tree be planted on public property and that the recipients place a permanent marker next to the tree. Stan started this project in 1966 and was joined by Theodore Klein in 1980 and James Fegenbush, Jr. in 1989.
