At the request of S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster, the South Carolina Floodwater Commission is launching an ambitious effort to plant three million trees — assisted by students from every school in the state, volunteers, counties, cities and private sector partners — on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2021.

Dubbed “Power Plant SC,” the statewide project will be the largest single-day tree planting event in American history. The Commission has assembled a coalition of public, private and non-profit environmental partners to raise awareness about the importance of trees to human and environmental health, not the least of which is the mitigation of disastrous flooding.
