DONATE: Joplin looks to replant state tree after tornado

JOPLIN, Mo. — A Joplin recovery group is seeking contributions to replace thousands of distinctive trees lost in the May 22 tornado.

The all-volunteer group calls itself A Tree Grows in Joplin. Its members want to help plant flowering dogwoods — Missouri’s official state tree — throughout the storm-ravaged city.

Group members plan to distribute 3-foot Cherokee Princess dogwoods in 3-gallon plastic containers starting in October.

The group says individuals and organizations can sponsor a dogwood starting at $15 per tree, with group discounts for 10 or more trees.
