50 million for our forests

Tree Planting Programs

Our Forests Need Your Help

America is blessed with a stunning diversity of forests. From urbanites in big cities to families in rural towns, we are all connected to our forests. 

But our forests need help. 

Natural disasters such as wildfire, insects and disease outbreaks are jeopardizing the very things that make our forests so wonderful, the majestic trees that grow from Maine to California. 

That’s why the National Forest Foundation is undertaking an ambitious effort to plant 50 million trees across our National Forests by 2023. This is a big goal, but it’s possible with your help. We’re inviting all Americans – businesses and individuals alike – to join us as we replant America’s forests. 

Why Plant Trees?

By planting 50 million trees on our National Forests, we are investing in healthy forests for today and for future generations. Together, we’ll restore tens of thousands of acres of wildlife habitat, from the longleaf pine forests of Florida to the cedar groves of Alaska. 

With your help, we’ll protect the watersheds that provides life’s most sustaining resource for cities Los Angeles, Atlanta, Seattle and thousands of other communities. And as these trees grow, trees you helped to plant, they’ll help fight global climate change and ensure wildlife have healthy places to live. 

planting trees helps STABILIZE slopes and improve water quality.

Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
