Over the last eight years, LightStream has restored 4,300 acres. From reforesting after wildfires in Oregon and Colorado and restoring degraded watersheds in California, to supporting urban tree planting efforts in Miami and Houston, LightStream’s projects have brought life to essential ecosystems that provide myriad benefits to the environment and people.
By reforesting land in ways that help fight climate change and nurture human health, LightStream is addressing its mission to improve people’s lives and make the world better.
“We are extremely grateful for LightStream’s steadfast support of vital reforestation work with American Forests,” says Jad Daley, CEO and president of American Forests. “We are equally grateful that LightStream has taken its impact to another level by working to inspire others to join this reforestation movement. Through innovative communications about the power of trees, LightStream has helped the public understand that if we take care of our forests, they’ll take care of us.”
LightStream’s support for forests and environmental health extends far beyond planting trees. The company has also led campaigns with American Forests to build awareness and educate people about the value of trees, both in our large landscapes and in the cities where we live.
In 2017, for example, LightStream created a pop-up “Forest of Dreams” in Times Square, New York City celebrating their first 1,000 acres planted with American Forests and building momentum for the company’s commitment to plant an additional 500 acres that year. The day-long exhibit, which featured native trees, forest facts, wildlife educators and rescued animals, drove donations that added an additional 50 acres of American Forests wilderness plantings.
