Replant South Mississippi Partnership

Year Planted: 2008

Trees Planted: 7,979
Location: Mississippi

The Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain and the Sun Herald newspaper formed the Replant South Mississippi Partnership with support from the Home Depot Foundation and the Mississippi Forestry Commission. Their goal is to replace the estimated 300,000 trees lost due to Hurricane Katrina. The American Forests CityGreen software estimates an approximate loss of 99,000 total forested acres in the six coastal counties that the Replant Partnership will assist in this project. The Replant Partnership developed a six county ‘Greenprint’ reforestation plan. The calculated net value of economic benefit for replacing the 300,000 lost trees over 40 years would be one billion dollars for Mississippi Coast residents and municipalities. The Replant Partnership has also developed a seed-to-seedling classroom education program.
