Lawrence and Nathan Burns

Lawrence Burns and his son, Nathan Burns, created the Adopt-a-Hemlock charity. They hope to raise $500,000 to help Grand Haven combat oak wilt.

You can help save Grand Haven’s trees and have fun doing it. At least, that is the aim of the Adopt-a-Hemlock charity started by a father and son team, Lawrence and Nathan Burns.

How the charity works, as Lawrence Burns explains it, is that a person can donate between $15 and $125 to adopt a tree in one of Grand Haven’s three wooded parks: Duncan Memorial Park, Mulligan’s Hollow Park and the Lake Forest Cemetery.
