As the nation's oldest conservation organization, we have been a leader in protecting, preserving, and restoring trees and forests for almost 135 years.
Through our Global ReLeaf program, we have planted more than 35 million trees around the world, restoring forest ecosystems that have been damaged by wildfire, disease, insects, drought, development, or any number of natural and man-made causes.
We're also a pioneer in the science and practice of urban forestry, and are dedicated to educating the public about the many benefits of trees and forests. The more we know, the more we realize that these are limited natural resources that we can't do without.
Lastly, we work as environmental advocates in the policy arena, whether on the local or federal level. We've helped pass critical legislation dealing with forest management, fire management, climate change, and more.
