All plantings are completed by contracted professional tree planters and are overseen and assessed by foresters on the grounds.

Our planting partners select and plant trees native to the specific area. Tree species selected will differ from region to region throughout the country.

The trees will be planted at the best suitable planting time for each forest, typically the spring or fall.

Your tree is planted along with thousands of other trees throughout the forest. Per your request, we can provide a map of all the locations planted on the forest this year to give you a sense of the size of the project(s).

We strongly advise against visiting the forests areas as these planting areas are often situated in remote regions with limited accessibility and may encompass tens of thousands of acres where hundreds of thousands of seedlings are planted. These trees are planted in areas where they are most needed, rather than in locations that are easily accessible or convenient for visitation. As such, we urge visitors to respect the importance of these planting areas and to support our efforts to restore and preserve the natural ecosystems for future generations.

Our "Forests of Great Need” are chosen with our on-the-ground partners, as they help us determine the forests in greatest need of replanting efforts. Once the estimated number of trees to be replanted in a chosen forest has been fulfilled, we, with the advice and help of our partners, then choose the next forest of greatest need. Donations made to a Forest of Great Need will plant trees in a variety of projects.
