Explore Our National Treasures

Our National Forests are very much a part of the fabric of America. They cover our mountain ranges, fill our valleys and line our lakes and rivers. They provide us with life-giving benefits and leave us in awe of the sheer splendor of Mother Nature.

There are 155 National Forests covering nearly 200 million acres in 41 states. They offer amazing recreational opportunities, but their benefits don’t stop there. These forests also provide critical wildlife habitat, filter air and water, sequester carbon and help reduce soil erosion.

With all they do for us, National Forests truly are treasures—here to sustain us, protect us and inspire us. That's why it's our responsibility to care for them and help them live on for future generations. The Arbor Day Foundation is working hard to replant these forests, and you can support those efforts now.
