The Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) celebrated its 100th anniversary with a tree-planting ceremony in honor of Arbor Day on April 27.

This planting was part of the Girl Scouts’ Centennial tree planting project: Celebrating the Past, Planting for our Future, a partnership between GSACPC and the Arizona Community Tree Council (ACTC). Through this partnership, 100 trees have been donated to local Girl Scouts to plant in their communities.

To culminate this project, the ACTC joined the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Arizona Nursery Association to donate 10 trees to the Girl Scouts organization: one tree for every decade of Girl Scouting in the United States.

The trees will be planted at the Arizona State Capitol. At the Arbor Day ceremony, Girl Scouts from Troop 2143 helped plant one tree with Secretary of State Ken Bennett, and Bennett read an Arbor Day proclamation written by Gov. Jan Brewer.
