American Forests has been protecting and restoring forests for more than 140 years.
From climate change and equity to biodiversity and water availability, forests are at the center of our most important environmental challenges.
Forests and trees slow climate change by storing carbon, but climate change also makes forests more vulnerable. We work to restore forests to be more resilient and better withstand climate change.
We all rely on forests for clean water. Our restoration projects benefit major U.S. watersheds and protect our valuable water resources by restoring and augmenting riparian buffers.
When forests are destroyed, wildlife is threatened. Most of our restoration projects involve a wildlife habitat component, including restoration efforts for threatened and endangered species.
From bringing the benefits of trees to urban areas to creating jobs where they are needed the most, American Forests is focused on building stronger communities through forests.
