Trees for Life



Trees for Life is a tradition of distributing trees in honor of each Louisiana child who died the prior year as a result of abuse.  Tree recipients are asked to plant, nurture, and hang a blue ribbon around the tree each April in remembrance of a child who died in Louisiana of abuse.

At the event, community members gather to honor these children and commit to prevention strategies that will strengthen families and prevent future harm to children.

Trees for Life began in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina, memorializing the innocent lives lost due to abuse while giving rebirth to our storm-devastated community.

410 Trees for Life have been planted since 2006.
