Keeping our forests healthy, whole and wild.
The trees that make up our forests are some of the oldest living things on earth, many of them older than America itself. These forests provide crucial habitat for thousands of species. They provide limitless opportunities for recreation, exploration and wonder. What’s more, our forests absorb and store carbon dioxide, which makes them crucial allies in our race against climate change. Together we can protect our forests from road building, logging, development and other threats.
