American Forests is the oldest non-profit advocating for expanding forests.
The American Forests homepage includes news, links, publications and information on the use of trees to protect the environment.
American Forests, the oldest national nonprofit conservation organization in the country, advocates for the protection and expansion of America’s forests. Since 1990, we have planted more than 45 million trees. We restore watersheds to help provide clean drinking water. We replant forests destroyed by human action and by natural disasters.
The work is guided by science: choosing the right mix of trees for particular locations, the best trees to act as windbreaks or to filter water, the trees that will provide wildlife habitat, or are most suitable for city streets and parks.
