Photo of Local tung oil tree (Aleurites Fordii) in bloom this spring. In a full sun environment, these trees grow quickly and begin blooming within the first few years. Tung Oil Trees produce large leaves which create substantial shade. The leaves are light and decompose quickly in winter. The tree also produces an inedible fruit which appears similar to a lime. These fruits can be utilized in the production of tung oil – one of the finest and most expensive wood polishes in the world.
Trees For Tomorrow is offering seedling Tung Oil Trees for planting at the cost of $10 per tree. The profits from selling these trees will help us buy more seedlings of other species for free distribution next winter. Call Rick at 457-8126 to reserve a tree for your property.

This year we will accomplish our 5 year goal of planting 15,000 New Trees !
“I would like to thank all the Board Members, volunteers, donors, sponsors – and the public – for their support of our ongoing reforestation plan.”
“Thanks to all of you – we have planted over 5000 trees in about 400 days! We are a third of the way to our five year goal of 15,000 trees planted.”
“ Our goals for the future are lofty. We have declared 2015 “The Year Of The Magnolia” – because so many have disappeared from our landscape over the years, only to be replaced with a lot of non native species – or concrete, asphalt and steel. The Board will be meeting soon and will be announcing more plans for the future.”
“In the mean time, if you would like to volunteer for future projects, be considered for a position on our Board – or if you would like to pledge financial support, please contact us thru this website.”
“Todd and I recently gave presentations at Waccamaw Intermediate School and Cub Scout Pack 853 about the ‘Importance Of Trees’. We would be glad to do the same for any group that is interested. Again – just contact us thru this website please.”
“We received the largest Tree Grant in the state from Palmetto Pride last year – and again this year. We are working towards a much larger public participation for our next tree planting event. If you or your company would like to Sponsor a species of tree, just call me at 457-8126.”
“We are also looking for passionate volunteers who can help us grow. Let me know if you are interested! Thank you for your support.”
