Plant a Tree at Flight 93 - National Park Week 2012
Flight 93 National Memorial kicked off its planned reforestation effort during National Park Week 2012. A group of over 500 volunteers under the guidance of tree-planting experts and professional landscapers planted nearly 15,000 seedlings -- a mixture of a native conifer and deciduous species. The reforestation effort, part of the memorial's overall design landscape, will ultimately include approximately 150,000 trees.
