Alliance for Community Trees Groups Improve Communities Through Tree Planting
Local impact happens when community-based tree planting organizations create projects that involve citizens, schools, churches, and government. This is the work of the nearly 130 members of the Alliance for Community Trees program. These passionate nonprofit organizations are the boots on the ground — a grassroots network united in its purpose of improving communities and towns across the country with trees.

Arbor Day Foundation's Community Tree Recovery: Bringing Life Back to Disaster-Stricken Communities
Trees play a vital role in our communities. So when natural disasters strike, the loss of trees is much more than meets the eye. The Community Tree Recovery program was created out of the great need for trees in the wake of 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 re-establishing neighborhood trees…as well as a sense of community.

VIDEO: Our Forests Are Our Heritage
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.

Arbor Day Foundation's Replanting Our Nation's Forests
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.

A Message From the Arbor Day Foundation Chair of the Board of Trustees
I feel very fortunate to have served on the Arbor Day Foundation’s board of trustees for nine years now. Stepping into my new role as board chair has given me the opportunity to reflect on the last decade and the great change I have witnessed at the Foundation through the years.

Arbor Day Foundation Is Pleased to Present Its 2018 Annual Report
As I reflect upon this past year at the Arbor Day Foundation, one word remains top of mind: impact. We set our sights on responding to global challenges by planting trees at an unprecedented scale. Those issues — air pollution, water quality, climate change, and deforestation, among others — heightened our resolve that if ever there was a time to plant trees, now is that time.
