Florida Tree Recovery

Donate Now dollarsign


On October 7, 2016, the eyewall of Hurricane Matthew passed approximately 40 miles east of Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The Category 2 hurricane sustained winds of 110 miles per hour, and sent a dangerous, six foot storm surge inland, washing away sand dunes and pushing water higher than any storm since the Hurricane of 1944. Estimates of damage to Jacksonville are estimated to be near $100 million. Trees and limbs were downed dozens of miles inland, creating power outages for tens of thousands of residents.
