Trees Planted: 18
Location: Louisiana

In November 2007, Tim Womick cycled 250 miles across Southern Louisiana. On his way Tim handed out 18 historic live oak trees to schools in Louisiana, including Angel Live Oaks, Jean Lafitte Live Oaks, and the Wright Brothers Live Oaks. Tim cycled as part of Acorns of Hope, a campaign started by Bob Thibodeaux to plant 10,000 live oaks in 5 years in public places along the coast of Louisiana to restore the coast and to educate the public about tree planting. The 18 trees donated by American Forests were funded by Sallie Mae.
