Volunteers at the Dodge County Fairgrounds are busy preparing for the annual County Fair this August. Support facility improvements at the Fairgrounds with donation of a nice shade tree for future generations to enjoy.  Various events are hosted on the grounds throughout the summer, attendees are often seeking shade and relief during the hot summer months. Shade trees offer a nice rest area and shelter from the hot summer rays. Several trees were recently removed due to tree disease and the non-profit Fair Association would like your help with improving the environment throughout the facility.

The Donate a Tree program was organized to provide shade and improve landscaping at the Dodge County Fairgrounds. Recently many of the mature trees were lost due to the Emerald Ash Borer disease and need replacements.  Trees will be planted annually in the spring and fall. Sponsored trees will also feature a small sign, identifying sponsorship or loved one. Brehm’s Wonder Creek Nursery will be planting mature, quality trees at the Fairgrounds. Brehm’s is located just southwest of the Dodge County Fairgrounds and has fifty years of quality service and horticultural knowledge in the area. All shade trees are produced onsite at the nursery.

Loved ones should consider donating a tree in memory or honor of a loved one. Organizations, clubs and companies are also encouraged to donate a tree showing their support for future generations at the Fairgrounds. Signage will be included next to each tree throughout the busy fair season for many years to follow.

In the first two years, ten trees have been donated by area businesses and families.  Please thank them for supporting the non-profit fairgrounds;
