You might not think much of a tree or why some would want to plant them but at A&M, someone has found a way to show their sense of giving back through trees.

In 1990, an Aggie named Scott Hantman wanted to give back to the community by planting trees. His reasoning behind this was the fact that so many trees were tore down to help build bonfire. He thought that it would be a good idea to replace the trees that they were taking. Like many traditions at A&M, Aggie Replant is rooted in deep in tradition.

23 years later Aggie Replant has grown tremendously. Not only is it a committee in the Student Government Association, but it’s an official Aggie tradition recognized by the Traditions Council.

This year, Aggie Replant is teaming up with Bastrop State Park to help replant the trees that were lost during the forest fires in 2011. Aggies will be volunteering on four different days – Feb. 16, 17, 23, and 24.
Aggie Replant has stretched its boundaries far beyond the Bryan-College Station area. It’s events like this that show the Aggie spirit in a whole new form. Students and faculty see a need in Bastrop and are willing to volunteer their time for a higher need.

Registration has already filled up, but there are still ways to give back. You can donate money to Aggie Replant by clicking here.
