About this photo

Our reforestation programs focus on establishing and maintaining tree nurseries, educating communities about the positive environmental impacts of reforestation, and strengthening economic development, both through conservation and the responsible management of forest resources. We work with existing local groups, schools, and communities in extremely low-income rural and peri-urban areas to provide guidance on how to plant, graft, and maintain their trees.

Today, we celebrate Arbor Day,  a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. The first Arbor Day was held on April 10, 1872 and an estimated one million trees were planted that day.

Celebrate Arbor day by planting trees!
