Since 1990, American Forests has supported the planting of nearly 50 million trees, both domestically and internationally. Global ReLeaf projects have addressed a variety of needs and issues, including restoration of wildlife habitat and watersheds, recovery from natural disasters, societal and recreational benefits, expansion of urban forests and more.

To continue this legacy of restoring areas in critical need of reforestation, the Global ReLeaf grant program provides private dollars to support reforestation efforts on public lands. Competitive grantees must maximize the use of total project funds per tree planted.

Although the 2016 tree restoration grant application period has closed, if you are interested in applying for a future grant, please review our Project Criteria and Frequently Asked Questions to determine if your organization’s project qualifies as a future applicant. We will likely resume the 2017 cycle by September 2016. Thank you for your interest.
