Earth Day 2001 Goal: One Million Trees

American Forests, the country's oldest nonprofit conservation organization, has a goal to plant one million trees for Earth Day on April 22.

The 31st anniversary of Earth Day is April 22. People can make a big difference in the health of the planet by planting trees in their communities and through the Internet with AMERICAN FORESTS' Global ReLeaf program which is partnering with community organizations across the United States and around the world. At www.americanforests.org people will find information ranging from the best way to plant a tree in their yard to an easy way to plant trees for Global ReLeaf in one of 50 ecosystem restoration projects underway this year. Every dollar donated online, or through the Global ReLeaf hotline at 1-800-545-TREE, plants a native tree and counts toward the million-tree goal. Individuals can also log in the trees they plant at home or in community action projects.

Thanks to American Forests
