CAMPAIGN: Arbor Day Foundation Annual Report 2018

CONTENT: Press Release

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.

This year, the Foundation planted more than 6.7 million trees in forests through partnerships with the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters, and international partners. And the impact is far-reaching.

Many of our replanting projects also focused on improving and maintaining water quality. Healthy watersheds are critical to healthy waterways, and a big contributing factor in all of this is trees. Our replanting efforts in the Catskill Mountains of New York, the Chesapeake Bay watershed area in Pennsylvania, and the Willamette Basin in Oregon are just a few of the projects that are improving the health of our river systems.
