The Arbor Day Foundation and UPS have partnered for the past 10 years on the UPS Employee Forest Program. As a member of the Arbor Day Foundation Evergreen Alliance — an elite group of leaders in innovation, discovery, and action around forestry efforts worldwide — UPS has created an exemplary program with a lasting contribution to worldwide reforestation efforts. In addition, their work connecting employees through the Employee Forest program has given team members hands-on experience in planting the future.

As UPS grows their work and their partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation in new ways, we celebrate their achievements and look forward to working with UPS on their goal of planting 50 million trees by 2030.
