Ongoing Event–Adopt a Tree

Arborist, Dave Leonard, has identified 50 trees that require care. By adopting a tree you will provide the resources necessary to maintain that particular tree while enabling us to preserve and protect Ashland’s “pleasure grounds” that Henry so deeply loved. A gift of $100-$500 will enable us to preserve the grounds of Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate, Kentucky’s first National Historic Landmark.
