NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME FOR TREES.
Trees provide the very necessities of life itself. They clean our air, protect our drinking water, create healthy communities, and feed the human soul. But these life necessities are threatened around the globe. To address this, we’re launching an unprecedented undertaking: The Time for Trees initiative. Together, we can create change … through trees. Learn more about our efforts to plant 100 million trees in forests and communities and inspire 5 million new tree planters by 2022 — the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day.
