Project Name: Arkansas ReLeaf

Location: Arkansas

Number of Trees: 150

American Forests paired with Arkansas Releaf to help the city of Marmaduke, which has been impacted by natural disasters. Marmaduke was hit by a tornado in 2011 two years after it was devastated by an ice storm costing the city much of its tree canopy. To restore the lost trees, Arkansas Releaf held a planting event for Arkansas’ official Arbor Day. Twenty-nine large trees were planted throughout one of Marmaduke’s parks to help provide immediate shade. A hundred smaller trees were distributed to community members, and 500 pine seedlings were presented to a local Boy Scout troop to plant. This project aimed to not only help restore the tree canopy of Marmaduke, but educate community members on different tree species, selection and placement.
