Iconic national forests in America are being devastated by droughts, pests, diseases and wildfires. Climate change supercharges all of this.
The REPLANT Act would bring damaged areas in these forests back to life by providing the U.S. Forest Service with the tools and resources its foresters need to plant 1.2 billion trees per decade.
More reforestation means creating 49,000 jobs over the next decade, primarily in rural communities, many which have been hard hit by COVID-19. It means clean drinking water for more than 60 million people in the United States. And it means less carbon dioxide in the air — the equivalent of capturing the emissions from using 85.3 billion gallons of gasoline.
Please ask your Members of Congress to co-sponsor The REPLANT Act.
