Trillion Trees Act
PLANT, GROW, CONSERVE, AND RESTORE TREES ON AMERICAN SOIL AND THE WORLD
One Trillion Trees Interagency Council established by Executive Order to promote healthy and resilient forests and rangelands by actively managing them through partnerships with States, tribes, communities, non-profit organizations, and the private sector.
U.S. Forest Service states that more than 180 million people in more than 68,000 communities rely on our Nation’s forested watersheds to capture and filter their drinking water.
Recreational visits to our National Forests promote economic growth, contributing $10.3 billion to the United States economy, and support approximately 140,000 full- and part-time jobs.
Department of the Interior has planted more than 58 million trees and is on track to plant an additional 22 million trees during 2017 through 2020.
