Every dollar plants a tree on behalf of a loved one

Rather than buying a loved one a dozen roses, why not plant a dozen trees? All it takes is one dollar to plant a tree on our National Forests. For each dollar donated to the National Forest Foundation’s tree-planting program, we plant one tree on our forests.

This Valentine’s Day, skip the flowers and opt for a more sustainable gift of tree planting – at just one dollar per tree!

Planting trees for someone you love on special occasions like Valentine’s Day is a great way to show them you care while also caring for the environment. Our National Forests are beloved and treasured places for millions of Americans.

Mary Mitsos, NFF President

Tree-planting on our National Forests supports fresh air, clean water and forest health. We work closely with the Forest Service to identify high-priority areas of need for tree-planting that have been devastated by forest fires, insects, and storms.

A Valentine’s gift in honor of a friend or partner shows more than just love for them; it demonstrates love for our forests.
