American Forests has worked longer than any national nonprofit conservation organization in the United States to protect and restore the country’s forests. Since its founding in 1875, American Forests has been the pathfinder for the forest conservation movement. The organization is now focused on building a movement to reforest America, from cities to large, rural landscapes.
