At least 10,000 trees are expected to be planted by Texas A&M students at a Bastrop County state park in an effort to restore the area, which was destroyed by the 2011 wildfire, an article on KEYE TV reported on January 31.
At least 800 students are expected to work in Bastrop State Park on February 1-2 and 8-9 to plant tree seedlings to reclaim the area. The tree planting, which is a project by the Texas A&M Forest Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the Arbor Day Foundation, is a five-year program to restore a majority of the trees that were charred in the September 2011 wildfire.
In 2013, at least 8,500 tree seedlings were planted in the area.
