When more than 100 tornadoes pummeled communities in Alabama in April 2011, citizens were displaced and devastated by the overwhelming destruction. 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.

In February 2012 and 2013, the first and second phases of the Alabama Tree Recovery Campaign were launched, bringing 60,000 trees to the people of 34 Northern Alabama communities. The third and final phase of this campaign launched in February 2014, when a final 25,000 seedling trees of four different varieties were distributed to 18 new communities in need.

Thanks to an outpouring of support for the Alabama Tree Recovery Campaign, the Arbor Day Foundation and its partners have been able to distribute 85,000 trees to 52 Northern Alabama communities. Donations are no longer needed for this specific campaign, but by donating to our General Community Tree Recovery Fund, your support brings life back to other disaster-stricken communities where the need remains. Find out how you can help plant hope and restoration in these communities.

As we look toward the future, the Arbor Day Foundation and its partners continue to work together to restore healthy, mature trees to the people and communities of Alabama. Find out how you can help plant hope and restoration in these communities.
