Learn how your business, no matter what size, can support our National Forests
The Sapling Program is designed for companies and organizations that want to demonstrate their environmental commitment by planting trees on our National Forests, but without the larger commitment of a corporate partnership. The Sapling Program is a critical component of our coalition of partners and supporters engaged in our campaign to plant 50 million trees.
To date, we’ve planted more than 715,000 trees with the help of our small business partners!
After enrolling in the program, every dollar your business donates will plant a tree on a National Forest that needs your help.*
*We are proud that we invest 85% of every donation directly into our tree planting programs. All trees are planted on National Forests in priority locations determined by the U.S. Forest Service.
Becoming a member of The Sapling Program and supporting tree planting on our National Forests is simple!

CedarCraft manufactures a full line of outdoor wooden planters, perfect for gardeners looking to grow tomatoes, vegetables & herbs. Their planters are manufactured in BC, Canada from sustainably sourced fiber and are PEFC certified. Wood is a beautiful, natural, renewable resource which CedarCraft never takes for granted and drives their commitment to sustainability and reforestation.
In addition to their sustainability practices, CedarCraft has partnered with key retail accounts and the National Forest Foundation to implement a program to help mitigate the carbon footprint associated with the delivery of planters. Through this program, 1 to 2 trees are planted for every CedarCraft planter purchased. This program aligns with CedarCraft’s environmental initiatives as well as with the goals of many of their retail partners.
CedarCraft joined the NFF as a member the program and within a few months, they planted nearly 24,000 trees, earning them a spot as a corporate partner. The NFF is grateful for the support from CedarCraft and we're thrilled to keep planting trees with them!
