Angeles National Forest Plant-A-Tree Program

The Plant-A-Tree program, established in 1983, provides a way for individuals and groups to have trees planted on specific national forests to memorialize loved ones or commemorate births, weddings, anniversaries, or other special events while helping to improve the environment.

For a suggested minimum donation of $10, donors receive acknowledgment of their gift and the name of the person in whose honor the donation is made is placed on the certificate.  

Trees will be of a size and species suitable for the location. The number of trees planted with a given donation will vary because of varying costs at different locations. Trees will not be individually identified on the ground but will be part of a plantation planted for reforestation purposes. Business groups may participate in the program as long as their participation is noncommercial. 

Donated funds are used to plant trees on National Forest throughout the United States.  By making a donation directly to any one of the 156 national forests located in 43 States, donors can ensure that their gift is used in the national forest of their choice.

Donations may be made in person or by mail.  Checks submitted to the program should be made payable to "USDA Forest Service."

Please write "Plant-A-Tree, Angeles National Forest" on the memo portion of the check, if you wish to have trees planted in the Angeles National Forest.  Checks can be mailed to the Angeles National Forest,  701 N Santa Anita Ave., Arcadia, CA 91006  Attn: Plant-A-Tree Coordinator.
