We are a Washington DC-based nonprofit, established in 2001, committed to restoring, enhancing, and protecting the tree canopy of the nation’s capital. To fulfill this mission, we plant trees, engage thousands of volunteers of all ages in tree planting and care, provide year-round continuing education courses, monitor the city’s tree canopy, develop interactive online tree tools and work with elected officials, developers, and community groups to protect and care for existing trees and to encourage the addition of new ones. The story of Washington DC’s trees extends back to our first President, George Washington, a tree-lover and accomplished horticulturalist who chose the city’s location and the man who originally designed it — Pierre L’Enfant. Planned to support a lush tree canopy with ample green spaces and tree-lined boulevards, DC still boasts more green space per capita than most major cities in the United States. Some consider DC the birthplace of arboriculture due to the tens of thousands of trees planted here in the 1800s, which earned DC its nickname, the “City of Trees.” Estimated to support approximately 50 percent tree canopy in 1950, DC’s canopy in 2001 declined to just over 35 percent. A Washington Post article chronicling this decline encouraged Betty Brown Casey, a longtime area resident, to establish Casey Trees in 2002 with its mission: “To restore, enhance, and protect the tree canopy of the nation’s capital.” Since then, Casey Trees has set a goal of attaining 40 percent canopy by 2032; planted over 30,000 trees; educated thousands of residents about the importance of urban tree canopy; supported the tree planting efforts of the DC Government, the National Parks Service, community groups and residents alike; inventoried and tracked the District’s tree resources to promote continued public funding for DC’s trees; advocated for green, tree-friendly development and similar pursuits. If you’re passionate about trees, sign up for a class, help us plant some trees in your neighborhood, or take advantage of the many volunteer opportunities we have available — it’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet people in the City of Trees.

Forest for the Trees is a feature documentary film (release date May 2021) and a book published by Dewi Lewis UK (due Fall 2021) and fine art photographs The Tree Planters and Enchanted Forests represented by the Stephen Bulger Gallery. Forest for the Trees is a visually told story through the vast landscapes of clear-cut logging and reforestation and through the stories of a community of one hundred tree planters. A world most people will never see for themselves; it captures tree planting by hand in remote and majestic locations in Canada. Planting trees one at a time is the overarching metaphor of how we can achieve things we think are impossible: reforesting the earth one tree at a time, getting through life's challenges one day at a time, and making a film one picture at a time.

Increasing a city’s tree canopy contributes to lowering urban temperatures by blocking shortwave radiation and increasing water evaporation. Creating more comfortable microclimates, trees also mitigate air pollution caused by everyday urban activities. Their absorptive root systems also help avoid floods during severe rains and storm surges. So overall, trees are pretty awesome. Cities around the world are recognizing this and many are developing strategies to increase green canopy cover. In fact, in 2015, the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Agenda Council (GAC) on the Future of Cities included increasing green canopy cover on their list of top ten urban initiatives: “Cities will always need large—infrastructure projects, but sometimes small—scale infrastructure—from cycle lanes and bike sharing to the planting of trees for climate change adaptation—can also have a big impact on an urban area.” As cities around the world race to implement green canopy strategies, we’ve developed a metric—the Green View Index—by which to evaluate and compare canopy cover. In collaboration with the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Future of Cities and the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers community, we will continue to grow this database to span cities all over the globe. Treepedia is not about rating cities to compete in a green olympics. Treepedia aims to raise a proactive awareness of urban vegetation improvement, using computer vision techniques based on Google Street View images. Our focus is on street trees: Treepedia doesn't map parks, as GSV doesn't venture into them as it does on average streets. Of course, parks are an essential component of urban vegetation. But have you ever wondered how sustainable your street or neighborhood is? Does your city need more efforts to make the streets greener? Did you know that you can also contribute by joining a bottom-up approach instead of waiting for things to be done by politicians and planners

Founded in 1972 –the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance– the Arbor Day Foundation is the largest 501(c)3 nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees. More than 1 million members, supporters, and valued partners have helped them plant more than 350 million trees in neighborhoods, communities, cities, and forests throughout the world to ensure a greener and healthier future for everyone. The vision of the Arbor Day Foundation is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, a changing climate, deforestation, poverty, and hunger. The impact they make on our world is accomplished through their conservation and education programs. They work to restore forests, improve tree cover in communities, and inspire the next generation of tree planters to ensure this important work endures. The Arbor Day Foundation has been inspiring people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees since 1972. And that simple mission has had a global impact. The Foundation has grown over the last 50 years to become the largest member nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees. And in that time, we have worked with members, supporters, and a strong network of partners to plant and distribute nearly 500 million trees worldwide. But our work is far from over. We plant trees because people need trees. And when planted in the right place, they have great impact. Trees help slow climate change, filter our air and water, foster biodiversity, and strengthen our communities. They create the kind of transformational change the world needs now. With your help, we can plant trees today for a better tomorrow. Trees are a key part of the solution to some of the biggest issues facing our planet. That’s why we have dedicated the last 50 years to planting trees in forests and communities around the world. And with the help of our extensive partner network, we can ensure that this work is focused where it can make the biggest impact. Trees help slow climate change, foster biodiversity, improve our communities, and provide a stronger future for everyone. It is critical that we continue planting at scale, now more than ever before. Thanks to our strong connection with planting partners, the Arbor Day Foundation can keep pace with the increasing need — while consistently ensuring that the right trees are planted in the right places.

Eden Reforestation Projects (Eden) was conceptualized in 2005 when Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Hailemariam Desalegn, invited Dr. Stephen Fitch to take over an abandoned nursery and forest restoration project along the Udo Escarpment near Hawassa, Ethiopia. Hailemariam Desalegn was then the President of the Southern People’s Region of Ethiopia. Dr. Fitch, who had personally seen massive tracts of land decimated by deforestation, accepted the Prime Minister’s offer and began developing and implementing what would eventually become Eden’s unique Employ to Plant methodology: provide sustainable employment to local people to restore and protect their natural environment. People from the local community at Gallo Argesi were hired as the workforce, and within the first year of operation, over 200,000 trees were planted. By the end of the project in 2012, over 15 million trees had been planted by over 3,500 Eden employees. By addressing the link between deforestation and extreme poverty, Eden has developed an effective model for reforestation. Its international efforts have since expanded into other continents and developing countries. Nurseries and reforestation projects with locally-hired employees have been established in Madagascar, Haiti, Nepal, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Since its establishment, Eden has planted more than 583 million trees across its project nations, with approximately 20 million trees added each month. Eden’s global restoration network is creating livelihoods for millions of people living in extreme poverty by empowering them to restore and protect forests on a massive scale.
