Several Apple Trees Remain for Illinois State Historical Society's Johnny Appleseed Program

The Illinois State Historical Society is still searching for locations in several counties in Illinois to plant an apple tree. The trees are grown from one of the last remaining trees planted by the famed Johnny Appleseed.


Gwen Podeschi with the Illinois State Historical Society says there are still several dozen trees available.



Some of the counties that have purchased one of the trees have big plans for when they plant the tree.



Several of the counties the ISHS has yet to hear from are in Central Illinois, including Shelby, Montgomery, Macoupin, Macon and Sangamon counties. If you’d like to purchase a tree, you can contact the Illinois State Historical Society by calling

(217) 525-2781 and asking for Gwen Podeschi.
