Enhance Your Backyard
Americans generously give everyday through their tax dollars to help sustain your national forests and grasslands. As a government agency, the Forest Service does not solicit donations. However, those wanting to support their national forests can do so through one of the many options below.
How to lend a hand
Your gift of a tree will be enjoyed by generations to come. It’s also a unique way to celebrate a special person or life event, or memorialize a loved one. We partner directly with organizations to help reforest our National Forests.
- National Forest Foundation plants one tree for every dollar you give.
- American Forests has many ways to help plant trees.
- The Arbor Day Foundation has several tree planting programs, including Trees in Memory, Trees in Celebration
