The trees are available to anyone who lost them in the tornado. A homeowner is given 3 trees and volunteers can help you plant them. Organizers say planting trees has now become a priority to many.
"You got to take care of people first, then get a home to live into. So, the trees come when your house is ready, spend some time watering that tree, especially if we had a summer like we had last year," said Ric Mayer, Joplin Tree Recovery.
You can apply for a tree at the Joplin Park Office located at 310 west 1st Street in Joplin during normal business hours.
