(BROWNSTOWN) - With all the concern over field and wood fires in South Central Indiana from the dry conditions lately, it's may be nice to see one organization is getting ready to replace some foliage.

The National Arbor Day Foundation has announced they will be planting around 70,000 trees in the Jackson-Washington State Forest south of Brownstown.

The organization says six species of oak and black walnut trees will be planted to reconvert wetland crop fields back to their natural forest wetland condition.

Nationwide, the National Arbor Day Foundation says they plant nearly 1 million trees per year.
