AMERICAN FORESTS has been an influential voice for conservation and the environment since its founding in 1875. Today the nation's oldest nonprofit conservation organization works with individuals, communities, and policy makers to protect and restore forest ecosystems. We are online at www.americanforests.org and publish the quarterly magazine American Forests and the monthly e-newsletter Forestbytes.AMERICAN FORESTS' tree-planting program, Global ReLeaf, works with local organizations and agencies to plant native trees to heal the planet. These trees provide cleaner air and water, habitat for endangered species, and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to reduce the effects of climate change. Every $1 donated to our Global ReLeaf program plants a tree. Since 1990, we have planted more than 33 million trees and have set a new goal to plant 100 million trees by 2020.AMERICAN FORESTS' Forest Policy Center advocates for legislative and administrative solutions to climate change, new policies on wildfire and forest management, and the development of a restoration economy. We also help local partners throughout the country build capacity to participate in policy decision-making and implement innovative projects on the land.Our other programs include: the National Register of Big Trees, the official list of the largest trees in the United States, published since 1940; Urban Ecosystems, analyzing, calculating and communicating the value of natural systems in metropolitan areas; Historic Trees, celebrating and continuing the living legacy of trees; and Environmental Education, providing the A Tree for Every Child learning and activity guide available online for use in the classroom.
