KOKOMO, Ind. – After last year’s devastating tornado that wrecked havoc on Kokomo, residents will finally get a chance to replant trees that they lost in the damage.

On Nov. 4, a coalition of regional and national groups will lead volunteers in plating 15-gallon trees, for free, at the homes of Kokomo residents affected by the devastating tornado that struck on Aug. 24, 2016.

They are led by RETREET, a Texas non-profit that steps in after natural disasters to make communities look beautiful again.

The organization intends to plant in three stages over the same number of years, with a total of more than 500 trees added to the landscape of the Kokomo.
