The U.S. Forest Management has national agreements in place with conservation organizations to work together to improve or protect watersheds on National Forest System lands and on adjacent lands affected by catastrophic and/or natural events, such as wildfire and insect and disease outbreaks.
Our partners have contributed millions of dollars in reforestation funds that are used for watershed restoration, post-fire restoration, forest health restoration, wildlife habitat restoration, carbon sequestration, and recreation projects.
Together with our partners, we successfully reforest our lands and rehabilitate wildlife habitat for threatened, endangered and sensitive species. Partner contributions allow us to extend the work that we can accomplish with current reforestation funding levels.
For decades, financial support from external parties has enhanced the Agency’s ability to reforest and restore landscapes across the United States:
- The Forest Service Plant-A-Tree Program helps to reforest public lands while honoring someone you know.
- National Forest Foundation plants one tree for every dollar you give.
- National Wildlife and Fish Foundation works with the Forest Service to conserve forested lands through stewardship and watershed restoration programs.
- American Forests has many ways to help plant trees.
- Penny Pines Plantation is a partnership with National Garden Clubs to help sustain national forests and provide education.
- Trees in Memory, Trees in Celebration are two programs of the Arbor Day Foundation.
- Living Memorials Project helps to create living, lasting memorials to the victims of the Sept. 11, their families, communities and nation.
