Over the past few years, American Forests has undertaken major transformational changes with one goal in mind: to better accomplish our mission of protecting and restoring forests to help preserve the health of our planet for the benefit of its inhabitants. With the support of our board of directors, American Forests has undertaken efforts to reorganize and realign departments, hire highly qualified staff, and upgrade technology and resources.

Below are the financial documents for our fiscal years since 2010, which reflect our commitment to the success of our important programmatic work by building a robust organizational infrastructure and ensuring proper funding and expertise are available for forest restoration projects, urban forest research and assessment, big tree protection, advocacy for sound forest policy and public education on the value of forests and trees.
