As trees die or are damaged, it is important that they be replaced to help sustain the live oak maritime forest and other natural and landscaped green spaces on Jekyll Island that support a mature tree canopy.

The Jekyll Island Foundation is proud to partner with the Jekyll Island Authority’s Reforestation Program. Along with the Garden Clubs of Georgia, Georgia Forestry, and JIA’s own live oak and pine seedling proliferation efforts, the JIA has planted more than 1,100 trees with ongoing efforts.

Newly planted Live Oak, Loquat (Japanese Plumb), and Crepe Myrtle sapling locations are maintained by JIA staff and located within or near an irrigation system.  Each location is a pedestrian friendly environment with prominent exposure to residents and guests.

Size: 4-6” diameter trunk, 12-14’ in height

Crepe Myrtle or Loquat Sapling – $1,000
