Tree Planting for Son's Birthday

Hi, I had an idea for my sons 1st birthday, I was wanting to invite guests and have each child plant a tree with their parent. Do you know if this is possible in Illinois? Do you know of any places where people can plant their own trees? The theme for his 1st birthday was a celebration of life and what better way to do that than to plant a tree. It's memorable, fun, and rewarding. I've heard of tree plantations in India where people would go on their birthday and plant a tree, ( I don't know if we have anything like that in the U.S. Please respond with any suggestions or ideas you may have for me. Thank you, Sunehra

Hi Sunehra:

I thing this is a wonderful idea! You should consider calling the DuPage County Forest Preserve District to see if they would entertain such a wonderful idea, or possibly The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL
