Forests cover 30% of the earth's land. Our forestsprovide wildlife habitat, natural beauty and recreational opportunities. They filter our air and our water. They are vital to life as we know it. And they need our help. Critical efforts to revitalize forests across the country—and around the globe—are underway to ensure that they live on for future generations, and you can support this important work.
The National Arbor Day Foundation is commited to making a cleaner and greener world, by planting trees where they're needed most.

Together, we can green up our communities, replant forests across the country, save the rain forest and make an impact on our planet.
