Grant Description

Grants typically ranging from $3,000 to $30,000 to USA, Canada and International nonprofit organizations and public agencies for tree planting projects in public and private lands that are in critical need of reforestation. Funds may be used to support a variety of activities associated with restoration tree planting (e.g. seedling acquisition, site preparation, transportation, equipment and supplies, contractors and volunteer organizing).

Projects must be conducted on public lands designated for long-term conservation purposes, or private lands with credible assurance of long-term conservation uses (e.g. conservation easement), management capacity and public access.

Projects should:

-Be conducted on sites that have been damaged or degraded by natural or human causes (e.g. wildfire, hurricanes, tornadoes, insects and disease, unsustainable logging, land clearing, mineral extraction).

-Be designed to help restore environmental and societal benefits through restoration tree planting (e.g. water quality and quantity, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, non-timber forest products).

-Plant a diversity of tree species native to the area.

-Be supervised by individuals with credible expertise in tree planting, care and long-term maintenance.

-Include plans for providing photo images of project sites before and after tree planting, collecting data (e.g. survival and growth rates) on tree planting success upon project completion and after one and five years, and measuring progress toward restoration goals or desired outcomes.

-Build local partnerships among multiple public and private organizations.

-Engage local volunteers in tree planting, long-term tree care and project-monitoring activities.

-Promote project visibility through educational and media outreach, tours and other events related to the tree-planting project.

-Demonstrate strong leverage of local support (funding and in-kind) to achieve a greater number of trees planted with the grant funds.

Competitive grantees must maximize the use of total project funds per tree planted. Particular interest is given to groups that include qualified individuals with disabilities and other diverse groups.
