Trees for US 

Consumers are increasingly interested in supporting businesses that have a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. Creating meaningful sustainability initiatives that strike a balance between your business and the environment can be challenging. The NFF’s Trees for US program offers a proven solution:  strategic reforestation partnerships designed to benefit your business AND restore America’s forests. 

Trees for US leverages the environmental commitment of the NFF’s corporate partners to plant trees on National Forest lands that need our help. To date, the NFF has planted more than 8 million trees with the support of companies like Salt River Project, Lands’ End, and Blooms Today. 

Together, we are addressing the greatest reforestation need in North America.

We start our partnerships by listening to you – understanding your motivations and goals. Once we learn what’s important to your company, we craft a partnership that speaks to your environmental commitment and achieves reforestation results for America’s forests. We’re adept at working in a number of partnership arrangements, including buy-one-plant-one initiatives, major reforestation campaigns, paperless reduction and more. 

Our partnerships

Our partnership with Caudalie is a great example of how reforestation can complement a sustainability strategy. For a company that sources many organic materials, tree planting was a natural sustainability focus. Together  we launched an ambitious goal of planting 1 million trees by 2018 over three years. 

This partnership demonstrates Caudalie’s commitment to giving back to the earth a little of what it gives us every day. We are thrilled to be working with the NFF to restore America’s National Forests.

Halfway through our partnership, we’re well on our way of reaching the 1 million tree milestone

Across all of our partnerships, we work closely with our corporate partners to recognize their environmental commitment and provide responsive partnership support. Through social media, blogs, press releases, infographics and unique visual content, we help tell the story behind your environmental initiative and what we’re achieving together. Of course, each instance is also an opportunity for the NFF to educate Americans about their National Forests, a key part of our mission. 

Beginning in 2015, Boxed Water partnered with the National Forest Foundation and 1% for the Planet to plant one million trees by 2020. Through their ReTree campaign, Boxed Water challenges its customers to post photos with the hashtag #retree and rewards their action by planting two trees for each post. Through traditional and social media engagement, we helped grow the ReTree campaign. This inspirational campaign earned Boxed Water several social media accolades and its customers have helped plant nearly 500,000 trees to date.    

Whether your goal is to demonstrate your company’s environmental impact or engage customers in sustainability initiatives, the NFF will work to craft a successful reforestation partnership. We look forward to working with you to make our partnership a success.
