Trees in the Ground

20 million+ / 24 million

20 million trees are in the ground!

Original Goal Met

North America

Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, United States

Mississippi River Valley

1,000,000 trees

The Mississippi Delta was once a 24-million-acre forested wetland. Today only 4.4 million forested acres remain, mostly in small patches, leading to water quality and habitat issues. Tree planting efforts will improve critical habitat for threatened and endangered species and protect the water quality of the rivers and streams within the delta.


British Columbia, Canada

150,000 trees

In 2017, the Hanceville Fire raged through British Columbia, burning 240,000 hectares of land. Because of the extreme heat, portions of burned forestland cannot regenerate naturally and must be replanted. Replanting will ensure that area residents will continue to enjoy all the benefits of the forest, including clean air and water.


British Columbia, Canada

170,000 trees

The Elephant Hill fire of 2017 consumed 1,920 square kilometers of land, leaving it charred and unable to naturally regenerate. This level of destruction took a huge toll on not only the forests but also the surrounding ecosystems. Replanting efforts will help to restore the natural state of the land, improve wildlife habitat, sequester carbon, and protect local waterways.


California, United States

California Wildfire Restoration

100,000 trees

This reforestation effort aims to help residents recover from the many wildfires that have burned through California, including the Carr and Camp Fires. The 2018 wildfire season saw an estimated 8,000 fires burning through more than 1.8 million acres of forestland between July and December. Replanting will ensure that communities around the state won’t face increasing challenges such as mudslides and degraded soil, water, and air quality.


Dominican Republic

200,000 trees

We are teaming up with planting partner Taking Root to supply trees to smallholder farmers across the Dominican Republic through a project called Trees with Purpose. This work will support local efforts to transform historically degraded land into diverse, multistory agroforestry pots. Farmers learn more about agroforestry and how to put it into action on their land — ensuring a future that includes a healthy ecosystem, a wider diversity of crops, and a higher income.

Florida, United States

Tyndall Air Force Base

983,000 trees

In October of 2018, Hurricane Michael passed directly over Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City, Florida. The Category 5 hurricane caused major wind and water damage including 12,000 acres of mature slash pine trees snapped in half. While funding was available for the cleanup effort following the severe storm damage, support is needed to replace the trees and ensure a healthy, forested future for this ground.


Georgia, United States

Georgia Watersheds

450,000 trees

The health of our waterways often begins with forested watersheds. In Georgia, we are working with The Nature Conservancy and several other local partners to improve tree cover in four areas of the state, protecting waterway health and providing critical habitat for local wildlife.



1,050,000 trees

Haiti’s mangrove forests help to stabilize shorelines, improve the quality of the water, and provide a natural habitat for fish and other coastal sea life in addition to supporting coral reef health. Working with Eden Reforestation Projects, we will be helping to restore mangrove trees in coastal marsh systems in southern Haiti.


Michigan, United States

Michigan State Forest Lands

2,207,067 trees

Together with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, we are working to replant several of Michigan’s state forests on a large scale. These efforts will replant native tree species to return this area to its natural state and improve area watershed health. The pine forests will grow to provide habitat for the endangered Kirtland’s warbler as well as other wildlife.


Montana, United States

Bitterroot National Forest

63,800 trees

Mountain pine beetle outbreaks have severely damaged the forest cover in the Ambrose Saddle area of Bitterroot National Forest over the years. Reforestation in this area with a mix of tree species will promote insect and disease resiliency, restore habitat for wildlife, reduce soil erosion, and return this area to its original forested state.


Montana, United States

Custer Gallatin National Forest

275,000 trees

Large wildfires have plagued this forest since 2000, and much of the forest cover is struggling to regenerate on its own due to the intensity of the fires. Tree planting efforts will speed up the recovery of the forest habitat for area wildlife as well as improve area watershed health.


Montana, United States

Flathead & Kootenai National Forests

281,132 trees

Wildfires, bark beetles, and root disease have created widespread tree mortality in Montana’s Kootenai and Flathead National Forests. This project is replanting the area with trees species that are resistant to all three of those issues. In doing so, it will restore critical wildlife habitat and ensure the forests are more resilient for the years ahead.


Nebraska, United States

Nebraska National Forest

40,000 trees

The rugged landscape of the Nebraska National Forest’s Pine Ridge District is a treat amid the central plains. Catastrophic wildfires, however, blazed through this National Forest in 2006 and again in 2012, wiping out much of the area’s Ponderosa Pine stands. Aggressive reforestation is needed to reestablish this tree species in the high-intensity burn areas that are incapable of natural regeneration.



975,000 trees

To help support small-scale farming families in Nicaragua, the Arbor Day Foundation is working with Taking Root through its CommuniTrees program. Together, we’re helping to build financial security and sustainable livelihoods — along with a stronger tree canopy — by reforesting previously underused land.


North Carolina, United States

Bladen Lakes State Forest

197,555 trees

In September of 2018, North Carolina was hit by Hurricane Florence. With it came flooding of the Cape Fear River that destroyed young forest trees in Bladen Lakes State Forest. This project will replant forest areas affected by flooding, restore critical habitat for area wildlife, and ensure that new forest plantings can withstand potential future flooding events.


Oregon, United States

Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest

23,100 trees

In 2017, the Chetco Bar Fire burned more than 170,000 acres of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, leaving in its wake limited opportunity for successful natural regeneration. This replanting work is critical to ensure a resilient tree line and habitat for wildlife.


Oregon, United States

Willamette River Basin

500,000 trees

The iconic Willamette River is 187 miles in length, drains a 11,478-square-mile area (12% of Oregon’s landscape), and serves as a major tributary of the Columbia River. Tree planting efforts here will protect the watershed area of a basin that is home to two-thirds of Oregon’s population and generates 75% of its economic output. This project will reestablish forests to ensure clean drinking water for residents as well as improve water quality and habitat for wildlife dependent upon this area.


South Carolina, United States

1,350,000 trees

The longleaf pine ecosystem supports a wide variety of plant and animal species, many relying solely on this type of habitat. But over time, longleaf pine forests have dwindled. Replanting work is underway in South Carolina to restore longleaf pine stands and support rare wildlife including the gopher tortoise and red-cockaded woodpecker.

Southeastern United States

Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina

1,000,000 trees

Longleaf pine forests have been disappearing at an alarming rate throughout the southeastern portion of the U.S., leading to a decline in the quality of area watersheds and wildlife habitat. Work is underway with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to reestablish these trees on both public and private land.


Virginia, United States

Rappahannock River Watershed

50,000 trees

The Rappahannock River watershed encompasses 2,700 square miles. Within this area, thousands of miles of streams are without riparian buffers and suffer from high levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. The watershed faces additional challenges due to urban development. Trees must be planted to prevent erosion, provide wildlife habitat, and reduce pollution levels in waterways.


Washington, United States

Washington State Lands

650,000 trees

We are working with the Washington Department of Natural Resources to improve overall forest health throughout the State of Washington. Replanting efforts are focused on providing forest resiliency for areas affected by disease and insect damage, restoring riparian zones, improving habitat for the threatened northern spotted owl, and ensuring healthy and diverse mixed-species tree stands.




100,000 trees

Burundi is one the poorest and most deforested countries in the world — with a vicious cycle of ever-increasing poverty, deforestation, and land degradation. In addition to establishing tree nurseries and planting trees, this project works to break the cycle through education. Farmers can learn about sustainable farming and the benefits of trees for their families and their communities.

The Great Green Wall

Senegal, Mali, Chad

3,840,000 trees

The Great Green Wall is a new swath of trees being planted across the African Sahel, one of the poorest regions in the world. It aims to restore 100 million hectares of degraded land and combat the area’s increased desertification, drought, and food insecurity. Once complete, it will improve the lives of millions of Africans for generations to come.



950,000 trees

Kenya’s Kijabe Forest has historically been one of Kenya’s five nationally important water towers, which provide an estimated 75 percent of the country’s water resources. Over the past 15 years, however, the forest has been cleared for charcoal and timber, creating dramatic and damaging impacts for wildlife, infrastructure, and quality of life. The goal of planting 1.5 million trees will help reestablish a sustainable water supply through protecting and replanting around springs and rivers. These trees will also restore, habitat for wildlife, stabilize steep slopes prone to landslides, and secure livelihoods.




600,000 trees

In the coastal zones of Madagascar, mangroves are critical. With increasing mangrove deforestation, these areas are facing destabilized coastline and an increased vulnerability to storms and severe weather events. We are working to strategically restore mangroves along the coast of Madagascar to help preserve this unique ecosystem.
