Plant a Tree at Flight 93
Over the course of two days, April 17-18, 2015, 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 13,000 seedlings across 20 acres.
2013: 500+ volunteers planted 15,500 seedlings across 23 acres.
New for 2015: Invasive Species Removal
This year, in addition to planting seedlings, volunteers will be needed to help remove invasive plants that are threatening the trees that have been planted in past years. The Memorial's native plant communities are impacted by construction projects, visitor use, and the invasion of non-native plant species.
