Over the course of two days, April 25-26, 2014, the National Park Service, the Friends of Flight 93, and the National Park Foundation continued a major reforestation effort that will eventually result in large areas of new forest at the memorial.

 
2012: 500+ volunteers planted over 13,000 seedlings over 20 acres.

2013: 500+ volunteers planted over 15,500 seedlings over 23 acres.
2014: 500+ volunteers planted over 19,500 seedlings over 30 acres.

These trees, which are a mixture of several native species, will form an essential windbreak to protect trees planted in the nearby Memorial Groves. Much of what is now the memorial is a former surface coal mine and this effort will also help re-establish woodland wildlife habitats and to cultivate a living memorial.
