Protecting the environment and making sure it flourishes is an important issue to me. Trees alter the environment in which we live by moderating climate, improving air quality, conserving water, and harboring wildlife.
Help have a tree planted today. Trees will be planted where they are most needed. American Forests have set up certain campaigns to plant trees.
A few examples.
- California Wildfire Releaf: A fund specifically to restore California forests after receiving an outpouring of questions and requests from California residents and people across the United States. AMERICAN FORESTS has set a goal of planting a million trees in the state.
- Tree for Tigers: Their goal: 200,000 trees planted in the Russian far east to expand tiger habitat this year
- IKEA: By planting your trees now, you will join IKEA and American Forests in planting trees to offset CO2 and cool the globe.
- Trees for the Holidays: Planting trees thru American Forests is a great way to give a gift of trees to a loved one that will never be forgotten. When you sponsor the planting of trees ($1 each, 15-tree minimum) they will send you (or your gift recipient) a personalized tree-planting certificate.
There are many more campaigns you can choose from. Go to American Forest's planting trees site today and help make a difference.
