Owners of residential properties in the Miami Valley that were impacted by the tornadoes now can visit http://www.retreet.org/mvtc to complete a simple online form to request that free, native trees be planted for them. Representatives of RETREET and its partners will work with those who submit requests to determine the best planting locations at each home site.
The trees will be planted by volunteers during events held throughout the next two years. Events will occur during optimal planting seasons, and are currently planned to follow the path of the tornadoes moving west to east, with the first planting events taking place in Trotwood, Brookville, Perry Township, and Vandalia this fall.
All owners of tornado impacted properties, regardless of where they live along the path of the storm, can complete their tree requests now. Representatives from RETREET will contact property owners as the planting events near for each community.
Inquiries about the Miami Valley TREEcovery Campaign can be submitted through the RETREET website (http://www.retreet.org).
