Plant trees, grow community

Plant a tree and tell us about it! Planting a tree is the first step to setting the foundation for conservation of the forest and freshwater ecosystems we share with the generations of today and tomorrow. Now is the time for trees – plant it forward!

Our pledge: Doing our part to help plant a trillion trees across the globe

The DNR will be a cooperative partner in achieving a global goal of restoring and growing one trillion trees by 2030 through the global Trillion Trees campaign. To further this goal, the DNR has pledged to plant 50 million trees by 2030 and aims to inspire people to plant trees.

But it’s about more than just tree planting – it’s a spark to raise awareness about the importance of trees, reflect on Michigan’s rich forest history and build capacity to grow forests and communities together.
