Trail of Tears State Forest

3240 State Forest Road

Trail of Tears, one of Illinois' state forests, is situated in western Union County, five miles northwest of Jonesboro and 20 miles south of Murphysboro. Just over 5,000 acres are within the State Forest.

The State Forest System in Illinois was established to set aside lands for the growing of timber needed in production of forest products, for watershed protection and to provide outdoor recreation. Trail of Tears State Forest is a multiple-use site managed for timber, wildlife, ecosystem preservation, watershed protection and recreation.

My experiences here have been nothing but fabulous. The owner only hires professional designers, and only lets gorgeous designs out of her shop. They also did my wedding, and completely captured my vision. The prices were unbeatable by other florists in the area, and I'm sure they wouldn't have been able to be as helpful in executing my design. My bouquet was GORGEOUS, and three years later I still love showing the pictures when weddings come up. Please continue to support this local business for your event and day to day needs! They will definitely make it worth it.
