The Rescuer Orchard is in an area where the Oklahoma Water Resources and Athenian Building once stood. Both sustained heavy damage and required demolition.

The Orchard symbolically "rushes in" from both east and west on the Memorial Grounds towards the Survivor Tree.

This placement was selected as a tribute to the Rescue workers who rushed in to help following the disaster.

Three tree varieties were selected, Oklahoma Redbud, Amur Maple and Chinese Pistache. The Oklahoma Redbud is nearest to the Survivor Tree in honor of the Oklahomans first on the scene.
