Arbor Day & Arkansas ReLeaf Projects

Benefiting Arkansas Communities

AUFC holds an Arkansas ReLeaf project to assist a community in Arkansas each year by helping restore the tree canopy that was lost due to environmental impact.

State, regional and local representatives are on hand to participate in the Arbor Day ceremony and Arkansas ReLeaf tree giveaway. Shade trees are given out to area residents to replace trees that were lost due to environmental impact.

These projects are planned and coordinated with individual communities and may be used for tree plantings on public lands, environmental stewardship and tree education programs in the public schools, as well as to render assistance to communities for participating in the Tree City USA Program. The project is made possible by donations from local, state, regional, private and public entities. Additional support is provided by fundraising events conducted by the AUFC. Communities that have benefited from the Arkansas ReLeaf project include Arkadelphia, Cherry Hill, Clarksville, Clinton, Dumas, Higginson, Marmaduke, Mayflower, Mena, Nashville, Scotland, Redfield, and  Vilonia.
