With a 150-year history in leading forest and climate solutions, we are trusted by brands across dozens of industries.
Good Partners Want the Same Things
We partner with corporations that are aligned with our mission and believe that climate action and social equity are high-priority issues that should be addressed.

We are driven by the important role of forests in solving two critical issues: climate change and social inequities that people in underserved communities face. Corporations play a leading role in making this movement a reality.
Lead Partners
American Express

American Express is committed to advancing climate solutions and backing low-carbon communities. Through its partnership with American Forests, the company is helping expand Tree Equity on a broad scale, making vulnerable communities more climate resilient and creating entry-level jobs for historically marginalized populations. Targeting four cities and one international location, American Express and American Forests will engage communities around Tree Equity, providing workshops and on-the-ground technical assistance to help cities work to ensure that everyone can experience the health, climate and economic benefits trees provide. The partnership will help identify locations to increase the number of tree nurseries — including a nursery focused on climate resilient trees — support the planting of urban forests, and place individuals into the tree care industry with meaningful transition support. American Express will help the Tree Equity movement expand globally by bringing Tree Equity Score, American Forests’ free national tool that helps communities identify which neighborhoods most need trees, to an international location.

To maximize their impact, Bank of America works with groups deeply involved in environmental issues, in particular, to address the disproportionate impact of climate change and historic patterns of pollution on minority and underserved communities, to scale clean energy and resilience solutions. That is why American Forests and Bank of America have partnered on Tree Equity to bring more trees to urban areas, improve the environment and enhance livability. Bank of America’s financial and volunteer support have impacted nearly 20 cities.

EarthDefine Logo

EarthDefine uses AI to scale high-resolution mapping of America’s ground cover, including trees. In 2020, EarthDefine deployed its AI to create the U.S. Tree Map, the most detailed map of all trees in the lower 48 states, updated annually to provide a “live” map of the nation’s forests. EarthDefine provided tree canopy data to American Forests for all urbanized areas nationwide. This data was critical for the calculation of Tree Equity Scores for communities coast to coast. A neighborhood’s Tree Equity Score is based on several factors, including tree cover, ethnicity, population density, employment and average surface temperatures. Urban areas can use the scores to prioritize where to plant trees, so that everyone experiences the benefits of trees, regardless of location, income or race.

Salesforce is also working to bring Tree Equity to Dallas, Phoenix and Rhode Island — areas that are grappling with extreme heat and that have been identified by American Forest’s Tree Equity Score as having high disparities in tree canopy. This work was featured at Dreamforce 2021.


Takeda is a global, values-based, R&D-driven biopharmaceutical leader with a large U.S. presence and a commitment to prioritize health equity, climate resiliency, K-8 math literacy and food security across the country. In 2022, Takeda and American Forests launched a three-year partnership to support two large areas of work: post-wildfire restoration and Tree Equity in four cities.

Takeda’s support for Tree Equity will help communities analyze data to decide which neighborhoods need trees the most and will fund plantings to ensure those neighborhoods’ residents receive the health, climate and economic benefits that trees provide.

TAZO Tea Logo

Low-income and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities tend to have far fewer trees than wealthier, predominantly white, neighborhoods do. These inequities — and the resulting disparities in essential health and economic benefits trees provide — spurred TAZO Tea and American Forests to team up to address climate justice. Together, we launched the TAZO Tree Corps: a paid, locally hired workforce that will use tree planting and maintenance to help combat climate change and create new jobs in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods and communities of color.

Travelers cares about its customers, the communities it serves and the environment. That’s why the company teamed up with American Forests to fund the planting of one tree for every Personal Insurance customer who elects paperless billing. The partnership helped put 1.5 million trees in the ground in essential ecosystems across the U.S. The effort was so successful, Travelers committed to plant or conserve another 1.5 million trees — bringing their commitment to 3 million trees so far. The company also supports numerous charitable and sustainability initiatives, including an urban forestry job training and mentorship program in Minnesota. Travelers has also committed to being carbon neutral by 2030.
