"Today, a world of knowledge, a world of cooperation, a just and lasting peace — may be years away. But we have no time to lose. Let us plant our trees this afternoon."

— John F. Kennedy

reTREEt America is proud to partner with Texas Trees Foundation and seven communities in the DFW area to plant 2,000 trees in memory of President John F. Kennedy. As we approach the 50th anniversary of his assassination, let us remember a man who asked us all to become a part of something greater than ourselves. A component of the Tree North Texas initiative, this effort will also help offset the loss of 301 million trees in Texas in 2011 and 2012 due to drought. Learn more about JFK Groves.
