Nebraska City, Neb. – Every American has an opportunity to help plant trees in our nation’s forests by joining the Arbor Day Foundation during the month of July.
The Arbor Day Foundation will honor each new member who joins the Foundation through the Replanting Our National Forests campaign by planting 10 trees in our National Forests that have been destroyed by insects, disease, and devastating fires. Membership costs $10.
The Arbor Day Foundation’s Replanting Our National Forests campaign will plant trees in America’s forests for future generations to enjoy.
The need to replant our National Forests is greater than ever. Wildfire season started early this year, and the previous three years brought unprecedented wildfires throughout the country.
The Arbor Day Foundation will work with the U.S. Forest Service, as it has for more than 20 years, to determine which forests will receive the trees based on the greatest need. The U.S. Forest Service has identified a 1-million acre backlog that needs replanting mainly because of record wildfires in recent years.
“Future members can make a positive impact throughout America by planting much- needed trees in our National Forests,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Planting new trees will help restore these national treasures for the benefit of generations to come.”
To join the Arbor Day Foundation and help plant trees in our National Forests, send a $10 membership contribution to Replanting Our National Forests, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or go to @linkhref=’http://www.arborday.org’target=”_blank”>www.www.arborday.org/link
