Plant-a-Tree Program

Seedlings on the Davy Crockett National ForestThe USDA Forest Service has established a Plant-A-Tree Program. Under this program individuals or groups may contribute funds for planting trees on National Forests. Donations may be made to honor or memorialize friends or relatives. Planting trees is a great way to commemorate special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, promotions or retirements. Certificates will be given to donors or persons designated by donors.

The purpose of the Plant-A-Tree program is to allow individuals or groups to voluntary contribute funds directly to the Forest Service for tree planting on National Forests as a positive and personal step toward improving the environment. According to the Internal Revenue Service, contributions to this program qualify as charitable deductions under section 170(c) (1) of the Internal Revenue Service code.

Donations for tree planting will be accepted in a suggested minimum amount of $10.00. All donations will be placed in a tree planting fund and will be used to plant trees on National Forests throughout the United States. The number of individual trees which will be planted with a given donation will vary because costs and planting conditions vary from one location to another.

The trees will not be individually identified or marked. They will be planted in plantations of several thousand trees on Forest Service land.
