GREEN FORESTS WORK

A 501(c)(3) Nonprofit
Tree Planting Organization

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

EIN: 46-1296612

OUR VISION

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 6 million trees across more than 10,000 acres.
