While trees may be smaller than those of past years, the island is green and dotted with vegetation. Preservation of the trees following the hurricane has largely been credited to the efforts of the Anguilla Beautification Club (ABC). This volunteer group broadcast over Radio Anguilla, advising islanders on tree-saving procedures. Before Governor Alan Shave retired, he presented ABC with $3,000. The club has used the money to import trees. It has provided citrus trees for islanders who wished to replace those lost in the storm and has imported shade trees for the island beaches.
