Appalachia

One Dollar. One Tree.

Appalachia is one of America's most beautiful and renowned regions, stretching across the eastern seaboard. Plant trees in Appalachia to help restore lands and impact communities! Learn more

With your help, we will:

  • Restore degraded forests and and preserve land
  • Improve economic outcomes and impact communities
  • Improve biodiversity by protecting wildlife habitat
  • Home to the namesake Appalachian Trail, more than 150 tree species can be found in the region, making it one of the most diverse ecological regions in North America. Unfortunately, the resource wealth of the region also means much of the forest has been degraded by mining and timber operations. Over the years, an estimated 83% of habitat has been lost. However, with an ever-growing tourism industry environmentally conscious organizations and businesses are stepping up to return the region to its former glory.
  • Reforestation in Appalachia will help restore forests degraded by natural disasters and human activity. Planting trees here will also benefit nearby communities as hydrological function will be improved, thus providing them with better quality water. This project also creates meaningful jobs in communities suffering from high rates of poverty and unemployment. Our planting partners are also implementing conservation practices to ensure the forests are maintained sustainably for many more years to come.
  • A personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you reports on our Appalachia project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • A variety of trees will be planted in the affected area based on the needs of specific planting sites. Species include various types of oak, yellow poplar, American chestnut and hazelnut, silky dogwood, and persimmon.

Why Plant in APPALACHIA?

Degraded forest

Restore Degraded Forest

Planting native tree species is critically important after deforestation, helping the entire ecosystem recover with both native flora and fauna. Without tree planting, these areas become overrun with non-native invasive species.

Improve economic Outcomes

Communities in Appalachia were hit particularly hard during the economic downturn of the last decade. This project provides jobs for skilled and unskilled workers, equipment operators, nursery operators, as well as the local tourism industry!

Copperhead snake - Appalachia

Protect wildlife Habitat

As one of the most biological diverse regions of North America, planting trees will help preserve the unique biodiversity of Appalachia. Salamanders, song birds, and copperhead snakes are just a few of animals you can help.
