NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. — The Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for every American to have 10 trees planted in our National Forests simply by joining the foundation during the month of July.
The Arbor Day Foundation will honor each new member who joins the foundation through the Replanting Our National Forests campaign by planting 10 trees in forests that have been destroyed by insects, disease, and devastating fires. A membership to the foundation costs $10.
The need to replant our national forests is greater than ever. Wildfire season started early this year, and the previous four years brought unprecedented wildfires throughout the country.
By planting trees in national forests, Americans from all walks of life can help preserve these treasures for future generations to enjoy.
The Arbor Day Foundation will work with the U.S. Forest Service, as it has for more than 20 years, to determine which forests will receive the trees based on the greatest need. The U.S. Forest Service has identified a 1-million acre backlog that needs replanting mainly because of record wildfires in recent years.
“Americans can help the planet through the simple act of planting trees in our national forests,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We rely on our forests to help clean the air we breathe, clean drinking water for millions of Americans and provide habitat for many species of wildlife. It is vital to the overall health of the Earth to plant trees.”
To join the Arbor Day Foundation and help plant trees in our national forests, send a $10 membership contribution to Replanting Our National Forests, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or go to arborday.org.
