Oklahoma has an average of 53 tornadoes annually. This results in severe damage to local trees which are very hard to replace. In the event of a tornado, the Tree Bank Foundation will raise funds for trees to replace those lost in the storm.
Please join The Tree Bank by assisting our neighbors across storm-ravaged Oklahoma. The funds raised will be used directly in those communities that have suffered damage from the recent storms. The Tree Bank will partner with Oklahoma Forestry Services and the Oklahoma Nursery and Landscape Association to provide trees, planting and maintenance education and volunteers to help plant the trees later in the fall.
If you would like to donate to this effort, please click here. Funds can be specified for Tornado Re-Leaf by choosing the “In honor” option. You can also mail your donation to the Tree Bank:

Edmond, OK 73013
If you would be interested in volunteering to plant trees this fall, please sign up here.

Plantings will focus on public spaces such as parks and schools. If you have questions, please contact Nicki Largent at 405.330.4701 or 405.630.9152.
