100 MILLION TREE-PLANTING INITIATIVE LAUNCHED BY ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION
SOURCE: CLEAN TECHNICA

The Arbor Day Foundation recently
announced its Time for Trees initiative,
which aims to plant 100 million trees
by 2022. Individuals, communities,
governments, and corporations will
join together to complete the work.
Some of the corporate supporters are
Bank of America, Bass Pro Shops
& Cabela's, Church & Dwight, and
Exelon. The website for the treeplanting initiative is Time for Trees.
Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor
Day Foundation, answered some
questions for CleanTechnica about
the tree planting.
Trees remove chemical pollution
and small particulate matter such as
NO2, O3, SO2 and PM2.5 from the air
we breathe. This has significant health
implications. The US Forest Service
estimates trees in the US save more
than 850 lives and prevent 670,000
cases of acute respiratory symptoms
each year by reducing air pollutants.

What Kind of Trees Will Be Planted,
Where and By Whom?
We choose tree species based
on the strategic recommendations

12 WOODLAND * Summer 2019

of our local planting partners in
forests and communities worldwide.
Our top priorities are ensuring
diversity and planting trees that will
be healthy and resilient long-term.
Ongoing care and maintenance are
critical.
To give you a sense for the
wide variety of trees we're planting
through Time for Trees, here's a
snapshot of species we plan to use
in 2019:
* Longleaf pine, Jack pine, loblolly
pine, red pine, Jeffrey pine, white
pine, sugar pine, ponderosa
pine, white oak, bur oak, red oak,
American chestnut, Douglas fir,
sweetgum, hickory, bald cypress,
western larch, and incense cedar
Each year of Time for Trees, our
focus and specific tree planting
projects will vary. In 2019, we'll be
planting in 24 states across the
U.S. and 11 countries around the
world. That includes a brand-new
partnership with the American
Forest Foundation to replant
8,000 acres of forest in California
destroyed by recent wildfires.

How Can You Organize and Manage
Such a Massive Tree Planting Project?
When we set our ambitious goal of
planting 100 million trees, we knew we
couldn't do it alone. That's why we're
working with such an extensive, diverse
group of partners - including our nearly
1 million members, local governments,
industry-leading private companies,
more than 100 Alliance for Community
Trees members (local nonprofit
planting organizations), both state and
national parks, and forestry experts
at the US Forest Service and National
Association of State Foresters.
To help us launch Time for Trees,
we created the Evergreen Alliance - a
hand-picked group of passionate,
committed corporate partners that
will serve as ambassadors. In addition
to providing critical funding, these
companies will spearhead tree-planting
programs and educational campaigns
to drive awareness and action.
From investing in urban green
space to replanting trees after natural
disasters like hurricanes, wildfires and
tornadoes, our Evergreen Alliance
members are making an impact in
