VIDEO: Our Forests Are Our Heritage

Now more than ever, forests matter. We need them. They need us.
Multimedia with summary

Our forests are a treasured legacy providing the very necessities of life itself — clean air, healthy drinking water, a tolerable climate, and so much more. But these majestic lands are threatened by insects, disease, and devastating wildfires.

In 2018, the Foundation planted more than 6.7 million trees in forests through partnerships with the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters, and international partners. And the impact is far-reaching.
