Inspiring People

We cannot do this alone. To plant trees at the scale we’re aiming for, we are counting on a new and revitalized population of tree planters.

We are actively recruiting new Arbor Day Foundation members who receive 10 free trees to plant in their yards. We are connecting with employees of our corporate partners, inspiring them to green their communities. And we are engaging schoolchildren — the next generation of tree planters — to educate them on why trees are so important and to establish a strong conservation ethic.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
