Reforestation Revolution: Time to Double Down on Answering Climate Change


A new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows the Earth’s CO2 levels have now hit a 4.5 million year high.

As never before, we believe answering climate change requires a revolution in reforestation – and we’re proud to be pioneers with you in the front lines.

Despite the incredible challenges faced during the pandemic, our landowners and partners never lost sight of their part in the growing revolution in reforestation.

In the last year, together, we have brought about change and reforestation through:

  • Committed to plant 100 million trees by 2030 as part of the US Trillion Tree Chapter
  • Planted 1 million trees on approximately 2,000 acres in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley
  • Launched a 10 million tree Drought and Flood Replanting Program
  • Started enrolling lands in Virginia with a target to plant 2 million trees this coming year

While we still have a long way to go, we want to acknowledge the impressive headway made over the past year.

For GreenTrees, that means leaning into carbon removal and reduction by working together with businesses, landowners, and the public to harness the power of forests and their most basic yet integral building blocks – trees – to reduce our strain on the environment.

As our only current tool to combat climate change that actually removes CO2 from the atmosphere while also reducing the impact of CO2 produced today, trees as nothing else help change course for our world.

Now, however, is the moment for those of us who are part of these urgent times to double down on answering climate change – and for more people to join us.

There are many approaches to carbon removal, and GreenTrees champions this growing movement and supports all those who play a hand in technologies that benefit landowners, the industry, and most importantly, our planet.

With the upcoming G-7 and the growing understanding of the Herculean effort it will take to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, our rapidly changing climate must be at the forefront of today’s conversation.
