Last of the Trees at the Mansion

 These are the Military Heroes Trees as you can tell by the lady in front of the stage that this area of Conservation Hall is very large. The last two of the above photos give you a better view of the trees at each end.  Students from all grades across the state and nation created the ornaments in honor of Tennessee military legends and heroes who have served our state and nation. The two large red, white and blue trees celebrate the five military service branches of our Armed Forces, children of military families and the state militia that make up the Tennessee Military Department. The two middle size trees highlight the Medal of Honor in celebration of our highest military service award recipients. The Yellow Ribbon Trees celebrate Tennessee Military Veterans. Our State or National Flag flank each side of the trees. 
Over in a corner by itself stood the Higher Education Tree. On this tree were displayed ornaments from many of our colleges, universities, technical schools, and community colleges throughout Tennessee, and it represents the importance of education for the future of our state. 
The Kitty Justice is I have finished the tour of the trees but you will have to endure artwork from the Mansion in the coming post.

Never thought about ornaments for a college or University. Interesting.

No endurance necessary on my part, my friend. These are simply beautiful....and I love the idea of the "Higher Education Tree." Stunning....and I know they were even more so in person.
Thank you for sharing them with me.

I thought all of the trees were really thought out and appeared to carry the theme well, Peace

So glad you have enjoyed the tree posts and I have few art ones on the way. I truly enjoyed all the trees and I found out that they also have historical tours so guess who will be going on one of those in 2014. Peace
