This Network of Local Nonprofit Tree Planting Organizations Nationwide Are United in an Effort to Plant Trees for a Better Tomorrow.
Local impact happens when community-based tree planting organizations create projects that involve citizens, schools, churches, and government. This is the work of the more than 150 members of the Alliance for Community Trees program. These passionate nonprofit organizations are the boots on the ground — a grass-roots network united in their purpose of improving communities and towns across the country with trees.
In the Wake of Natural Disasters, New Trees Bring Hope and Healing to Communities Beginning to Rebuild.
Trees play a vital role in our communities. So when natural disasters strike, the loss of trees can be devastating. Damaged buildings and homes are often covered by insurance — but not the trees. The Community Tree Recovery program was created out of the great need to replace trees following natural disasters.
Through this program, residents who lost trees in major disasters caused by wildfires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and insects can receive free trees to plant in their yards. This work is critical for reestablishing neighborhood trees ... as well as a sense of community.
Trees Are an Important Part of the Solution to Many Critical Issues Facing the Planet and Humankind.

Trees provide the very necessities of life itself. They clean our air, protect our drinking water, create healthy communities, and feed the human soul. But these life necessities are threatened around the globe.
To address this, we have launched an unprecedented undertaking: the Time for Trees initiative. Our goals through this initiative are to plant 100 million trees and inspire 5 million tree planters to help carry our mission forward — all by 2022, the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day and the 50th anniversary of the Arbor Day Foundation.
