America’s national forests are home to hundreds of thousands of hiking trails, campgrounds, rivers, ski resorts, and more.

To give back to lands that give us so much, the National Forest Foundation is turning every dollar donated during the month of April into a tree planted in a national forest.

Watch the video below to learn more about the National Forest Foundation’s 50 million trees mission, or read more about the Foundation’s tree-planting campaign here.

From now until the end of the month, the congressionally-chartered NFF will match all donations to plant up to 75,000 trees, part of a greater effort by the Foundation to plant 50 million trees to battle deforestation and revive a West that was crippled in 2020 by seemingly interminable fires.

Because of the impact of fires this past year, the National Forest Foundation will focus tree-planting efforts in areas that encountered the most detrimental fallout, areas many fear will face even worse challenges in 2021 due to lingering drought from previous year.
