GREEN FORESTS WORK

Our mission is to restore healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia and beyond.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit tree-planting organization

EIN: 46-1296612

 

We earned a 2022 Platinum Seal with @CandidDotOrg! Check out our #GreenForestsWorkProfile to learn more
and make a difference with your support!

GFW’s vision is to create a renewable and sustainable multi-use resource that will provide economic opportunities while enhancing the local and global environment. By converting reclaimed,
non-native grasslands and shrublands into healthy, productive forestland, GFW is effectively addressing two needs of the region. Our reforestation projects provide jobs for equipment operators, nursery workers, and tree planters, and improve the environment by eradicating non-native species and restoring ecosystem services. 

 Since 2009, we've planted more than 5 million trees across more than 9,400 acres.
