Marking the one-year milestone of the devastating May 2011 tornado that struck Joplin, Mo., national equipment manufacturers Kubota Tractor Corporation and Vermeer Corporation, along with support from the Immanuel Lutheran Church of Joplin, planted more than 90 oak, maple and locust trees in neighborhoods hit hardest by the storm. The community beautification effort represents a step toward restoring the landscape to its original beauty and revitalizing the hope of its residents.
