Plant a Tree at Flight 93
Over the course of four days, April 19-20 and 26-27, 2013, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation continued a major reforestation effort that will eventually result in large swaths of new forest at the memorial.
2012: 500+ volunteers planted over 13,000 seedlings over 20 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.
