General

  • Mission:
  • Aggie Replant is an environmental service organization which strives to improve its greater community and bring students together through tradition, unity and selfless service by providing an avenue for environmental service through annual tree planting events, such as Replant Day.

  • Overview:
  • Aggie Replant focuses on improving the local and statewide environment through two yearly tree planting events. In the fall, we put on Replant Day where we take around 500 A&M students around the Bryan/College Station area to plant around 150 trees. In the spring, we are partnered with the Texas Forestry Service to help rebuild the Lost Pines forest, which burned down in 2011. We take around 600 students to plant around 10,000 tree saplings. In between these events the committee participates in other local environmental project as well as leadership development activities.

  • History:
  • Scott Hantman organized the first Replant Day in 1991, as a part of the student organization Environmental Issue Committee. In 1992, Aggie Replant became its own student government association organization with Scott Hantman as its director. Replant Day was held in the spring until drought conditions worsened and we were advised to move it to the fall for improved tree survival rates. In 2013, we partnered with the Texas Forestry Service when they asked us to help them in their 5 year campaign to rebuild the Lost Pines forest by planting 1 million loblolly pine saplings in 5 years. As a committee, we have also participated in many Keep Brazos Beautiful events such as Texas Trash Off and Brazos Valley Earth Day. We have also strived to support other student organizations by participating in their events.
