American Forests’ landscape-scale restoration work is driven by one unifying goal: to restore North America’s native forest landscapes to full health and long-term resilience.
Our American ReLeaf program is taking action to heal our forests by replanting forests on damaged lands and leading other forest restoration actions to create resilient, healthy forests for our future.
Across North America millions of acres of native forests have been lost or degraded by disasters like wildfire and pest infestations as well human actions like mining and widespread clearing for unsustainable practices.
Climate change is adding further stress to our forests, ramping up threats like wildfire and weakening forests that simply can’t adapt fast enough. Climate change is the most profound threat our forests have ever faced.
