American Forests creates place-based partnerships in cities and forest landscapes so we can work with others to develop enduring, science-based forestry plans that include techniques for adapting to climate change. We advocate for local, state and federal policies and programs — as well as funding to support them — to bring the plans to life. We also plant and care for forests so they are healthy and resilient for generations to come.
Tree Equity Place-based Partnerships
American Forests works with local partners to create reforestation plans focused on neighborhoods that need trees most and to build capacity in the urban forestry workforce. We have worked in more than 25 cities and are now focused on Detroit, Boston, Phoenix, San Antonio and Rhode Island (a small state that categorizes itself as a large urban forest).
Resilient Forests Place-Based Partnerships
American Forests creates local partnerships in priority reforestation landscapes, from Texas to California to the Northern Rockies. For instance, over the last 22 years we have worked with partners to plant more than 2 million thornforest trees in the Rio Grande Valley, and we help guide and unify work among many stakeholders to protect the region’s wildlife and water.
