Our Story


Trees for the Planet was founded in 1992 to study the environmental impact of mountain-top removal in Appalachia. Over the years, our research and educational mission has remained. In 2013, we became more involved in direct environmental activities including planting trees in the Appalachian Mountain range along with groups such as ARRI (Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative) and Green Forest Works. 


We have also been helping educate students about the benefits of native plants and the food webs they support.


We are now establishing and expanding ecosystems throughout Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic with restorative tree plantings.

Our mission

Growing native trees and plants to improve the health of people and the planet.
