Lincoln, Neb. (March 8, 2012) – Print a Forest has launched a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation that relies on innovative software to plant one tree for every 100 pages printed.

To participate in the program, interested users must first download the free and easy-to-use Print a Forest software. The software allows brands to sponsor each page that is printed, and revenue from the sponsorship of each branded footnote goes directly toward much-needed tree planting in our nation's forests.

The software is available for download at www.printaforest.com.

"This software gives people the chance to offset printing when reducing or eliminating printing is not an option," said Joe Miller, founder of Print a Forest. "Our software allows anyone to transform the paper they print into a forest of newly planted trees with our reforestation partner, the Arbor Day Foundation."

"This creative partnership with Print a Forest will bring direct benefit to our nation's forests in terms of improved wildlife habitat, clean water and beauty for generations to enjoy," said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation.

The tree planting in national forests will be completed as part of the Arbor Day Foundation's continued partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters and the National Association of State Park Directors.

About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit conservation and education organization of nearly one million members, with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. More information on the Foundation and its programs can be found at arborday.org.
