(Omaha, NE) -- A local non-profit is asking for the public's help in replacing trees destroyed in last weekend's historic thunderstorm.
The Omaha Parks Foundation says they're raising money to help with the city’s long-term recovery from the storm. “Winds of 95+mph obliterated hundreds if not thousands of trees throughout the Omaha area,” a post from the Omaha Parks Foundation states.
OPF has started a fund to help replant trees throughout the city. The foundation says donations of any amount are welcome, noting that tree replacement costs about $250 each.
Donations can be made online via the foundation’s website or PayPal.
