American Forests is a non-profit organization that has been protecting and restoring forests for more than 140 years. We, at BlackSplitterNJ have committed a portion of our sales to go directly to this organization. While they may be the nation’s oldest conservation organization, their work today is more important than ever. Since 1990 alone, they have planted more than 50 million trees, helping to restore forests in all 50 states and nearly 50 countries. This year, they will plant millions more in dozens of forest conservation projects. Together, these projects recover hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlife habitat, safeguard vital watersheds, absorb millions of tons of greenhouse gases and protect some of the most stunning landscapes in America.
American Forests is also a leading advocate for using trees and greenspace to make our cities more sustainable, beautiful and livable.
