Green Forests Work

GFW’s vision is to create a renewable and sustainable multi-use resource that will provide economic opportunities while enhancing the local and global environment. By converting reclaimed, non-native grasslands and shrublands into healthy, productive forestland, GFW is effectively addressing two needs of the region. Our reforestation projects provide jobs for equipment operators, nursery workers, and tree planters, and improve the environment by eradicating non-native species and restoring ecosystem services. With the help of our partners and volunteers, this vision is quickly becoming a reality…

 Since 2009, we have planted nearly 4 million trees across more than 6,000 acres.
