American Forests

American Forests is creating healthy and resilient forests from cities to wilderness that deliver essential benefits for climate, people, water and wildlife.

American Forests inspires and advances the conservation of forests, which are essential to life. We do this by:
– protecting and restoring threatened forest ecosystems;
– promoting and expanding urban forests; and
– increasing understanding of the importance of forests.
