Since 1990, American Forests has completed restoration work in all 50 U.S. states and 45 countries around the world, helping to plant nearly 50 million trees in areas of crucial need. These projects have restored forest ecosystems for a variety of critical issues, including wildlife habitat improvement, responses to wildfire and other threats, water resource protection and carbon offset benefits. Through local partnerships, American Forests is able to involve individuals, organizations, agencies and corporations in tree planting projects that restore local and global ecosystems.
Global ReLeaf in 2015
This year’s 36 projects will help 18 states and seven countries reforest areas damaged by wildfire, pests, disease, deforestation, natural disasters and more. Read more about these projects.
American Forests is also celebrating the program’s 25th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, we are currently running a blog series highlighting one or more projects from each year of the program since its inception.
