Second Tree Recovery Campaign

Launched last year by the National Audubon Society (NAS) and National Arbor Day Foundation (NADF), the Katrina Tree Recovery Campaign has donated over 25,000 trees to residents of coastal Mississippi and southeastern Louisiana. Donations have come from people in 43 states.

As the prime fall planting season approaches, the NADF will deliver at least 18,000 additional trees for a second tree giveaway program. During the March 4, 2006 tree giveaway program, over 6,000 each of four native tree species were distributed: bald cypress, red maple, red oak and live oak. The giveaway program was assisted by nearly 100 volunteers.

Still, thousands of trees are needed to replace what was lost.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this campaign to help families rebuild their community forests” said John Rosenow, president of the NADF. Rosenow said NADF will provide each donor of $10 or more a free membership including a subscription to the foundation’s bimonthly publication, Arbor Day. For every $10 contribution to the Katrina Tree Recovery Campaign, the NADF will donate 10 trees to volunteer tree planters in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Audubon Mississippi’s collaboration with NADF is part of its overall initiative to promote the recovery of habitat for birds and other wildlife in areas stricken by Katrina.
