As one of the most biological diverse regions of North America, planting trees will help preserve the unique biodiversity of Appalachia. Salamanders, song birds, and copperhead snakes are just a few of animals you can help.
Communities in Appalachia were hit particularly hard during the economic downturn of the last decade. This project provides jobs for skilled and unskilled workers, equipment operators, nursery operators, as well as the local tourism industry!
This project also creates meaningful jobs in communities suffering from high rates of poverty and unemployment. Our planting partners are also implementing conservation practices to ensure the forests are maintained sustainably for many more years to come.
