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

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.

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. We are thankful for our dedicated Foundation members, corporate sponsors, and partners who continue to respond to the need for replanting.

As we continue to experience record-setting fires each year, the Arbor Day Foundation knows that it will take a multi-faceted approach to restore the natural landscape that has been destroyed in communities and to build resiliency in forests near and far. In 1988, the Yellowstone Fires were the catalyst for the creation of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Reforestation program, which helped to restore 8,000 acres of severely burned land in the adjoining Gallatin National Forest.
