  • Plant a Tree at Flight 93 - 2017 Event Recap

    Thank you participants, forestry professionals and sponsors!

    On May 19 and 20, 2017, approximately 500 volunteers converged together at Flight 93 National Memorial to work with forestry professionals to help plant a total of 11,600 native tree seedlings across 17 acres of memorial landscape! Our volunteer tree planters work towards reclaiming the old mine site, as well as assist in creating a living memorial landscape meant to honor the actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93.

    Thanks to this year’s efforts, we have successfully planted 112,958 trees seedlings at Flight 93 National Memorial. The goal is to eventually plant over 150,000 seedlings that will grow to create a windbreak for the 40 Memorial Groves, improve wildlife habitats, and restore the land to its natural, pre-mining appearance.

    For the sixth consecutive year, the Friends of Flight 93, National Park Service and National Park Foundation partnered with local sponsors and donors to host the reforestation project at Flight 93 National Memorial. We look forward to next year's planting dates in the hopes of getting closer to our goal of planting 150,000 new seedlings across Flight 93!
