PARADISE, Calif.- There will soon be thousands of new trees planted all around the ridge.
Saturday, the Butte County Resource Conservation District hosted a free native tree giveaway.
Hundreds of Camp Fire survivors stopped by The Paradise Alliance Church on Clark Road to pick up some trees.
Many survivors said they were excited to be able to plant some new trees on their properties after losing so many during the Camp Fire.
Camp Fire survivor, Angie Derryberry, from Old Magalia, was among the people who came to the giveaway. "I got some Cedar and Ponderosa Pine which is exactly what I had on my property before so I'm looking forward to it," Derryberry said.
Joyce Crenshaw, a Camp Fire survivor from Paradise said, "It makes me feel good because it was a shame to lose all of them, it hurt so bad, it hurt losing everything."
Shepard Smith, traveled from Southern California, to help give trees away. Smith told Action News Now, "It's been heartbreaking but the best part is how the community is rallying together, people who are returning are investing in the community and we are really glad."
He said they are hoping to giveaway close to 10,000 trees this weekend.
Smith said the leftover trees will be planted around the ridge during the next couple of days.
