American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country, advocates for the protection and expansion of America’s forests. This advocacy, guided by science, is to keep policymakers informed about how trees interact with climate, sequester carbon, manage water, and benefit cities - acknowledging that ecological services from trees and forests have real economic value. American Forests works in and advocates for federal, state, and urban forests, and sometimes beyond US borders as well.
For over two decades, the Global ReLeaf program has worked on more than 600 projects with local partners to plant trees in every state, and in 38 countries around the world. The Wildfire ReLeaf ecosystem restoration and tree planting initiative is designed to plant millions of trees in environmentally sensitive areas scorched by wildfires of recent years.
