The Terrebonne Parish Tree Board awards the Tree-Mendous Tree Award four times a year to recognize regionally appropriate trees that have received stewardship from individuals, organizations, businesses, or government. These outstanding, “tree-mendous” trees promote community engagement and improve the quality of life in Terrebonne Parish. The award serves to recognize and applaud the stewards of these trees.
