Many of the beautiful trees throughout Alabama were destroyed by devastating tornadoes in April, 2011. Through the Alabama Tree Recovery Campaign, people across America are answering the call to help replant trees and restore natural beauty to the afflicted areas.

$1 = 1 tree

Trees are an essential part of each community. They play a quiet, but critical role in improving quality of life for citizens by cleaning the air we breathe and the water we drink, shading our homes and parks, and framing beautiful streets, boulevards, and neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, every year, tornadoes, hurricanes, ice storms, fire, and other natural disasters strike communities and create dramatic loss of trees. Without this green infrastructure, the environmental sustainability, economy, and sense of place for thousands of residents are severely impacted.

In the wake of these storms, recovery efforts do, and should, begin with home and health - addressing the most basic human necessities. Soon after, however, the conversation begins about bringing community trees back to their previous beauty and strength. Through the Disaster Recovery Program, the Arbor Day Foundation assists in the recovery process by coordinating tree restoration efforts in communities affected by natural disasters.
