2008 Tree Planting Grants Available
American Forests in search of tree planting projects

Global ReLeaf, a program of American Forests the nation’s oldest nonprofit citizens’ conservation organization (www.americanforests.org), is offering annual grants towards tree planting projects. Currently they are accepting tree planting project proposals for 2008. American Forests’ mission is to grow a healthier world. Global ReLeaf is American Forests’ education and action program that helps individuals, organizations, agencies, and corporations improve the local and global environment by planting and caring for trees. Since it’s creation in 1988 the program has supported plantings of over 25 million trees worldwide.

The Global ReLeaf grant program provides private dollars to support local reforestation efforts and help match other funding sources. American Forests raises a dollar for every tree planted with Global ReLeaf. The dollars fund the reforestation projects. Competitive grant requests must maximize the use of total project funds per tree planted. Grants are available to support rural seedling projects restoring damaged forest ecosystems. Further information regarding Global ReLeaf Grants including application forms and criteria can be found at: http://www.americanforests.org/global_releaf/grants/

Please forward this grant opportunity to all motivated treehuggers planning 2008 plantings. Deadlines for grant proposals is July 1st.
