America250PA’s Liberty Tree Planting Ceremony

May 19, 2024
4:00 pm
- 5:00 pm

During the American Revolutionary War, the Sons of Liberty often convened under the nation’s original Liberty Tree in Boston, to discuss their opposition to British rule in the colonies. This historic tree became a beacon of hope to colonists and a symbol of American freedom. In an attempt to stymie these colonists, the British destroyed Boston’s Liberty Tree. Suddenly, patriots throughout the 13 colonies began to designate new Liberty Trees. The last known original Liberty Tree sat on the campus of Saint John’s University in Maryland, until it was destroyed by Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

Today, seeds from a scion of the original tree are being collected, grown into seedlings, and planted across the Commonwealth! Only one tree per county.

Generously sponsored by and in partnership with the Pennsylvania Freemasons, America250PA’s Liberty Tree Project includes a certified Liberty Tree planted in each of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties beginning in the Fall of 2021, through 2026.

Join us for the Pike County tree planting.
