Last night, the City of Concord recognized Jim Milliken of Modern Woodmen of America with the first annual Tree Champion Award. The award was given out during the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Business After Hours event at Grappone Mazda.

Jim has participated in the City’s annual Arbor Day Celebration for the past 16 years, donating more than 20 trees. These trees have been planted in public spaces including Abbot-Downing School, Garrison Park, Merrill Park, Rollins Park and White Park, among others. The City is thankful for Jim’s contributions and the benefits they will provide to the community for years to come.


Jim is a lifelong resident whose favorite volunteer activities are “any that teach kids the importance of citizenship and doing things to improve their community.” He particularly enjoys planting trees with the children from local schools and childcare centers during the Arbor Day Celebration and talking with them about the importance of trees.


The City of Concord Conservation Commission’s Tree Subcommittee has a mission to promote appropriate tree planting and maintenance on public and private property to enhance the urban tree canopy. This award will continue to be presented to a business or individual who has made significant contributions to the City of Concord’s treescape.

Included are some Arbor Day photos from this year and years past. Thank you, Jim for all of your contributions to #ConcordNH! 🌳
