We plant the trees. You wear the love.

Jungle LoveJust in time for the holidays, we’re offering a new 12 month membership that plants 10 trees in a threatened rain forest and includes our new Rain Forest Rescue t-shirt for free. This is a great membership option for those who want to help preserve our precious rain forests.

Our earth’s rain forests cover only 2% of the planet. Yet they are home to more than half of the world’s plant and animal species, including 70% of the plants used for medicines that fight cancer. Your donation will help restore our earth’s rain forests for future generations.

Similar to our other memberships, you’ll receive a free subscription to our bimonthly newsletter, Arbor Day. Arbor Day is a gardener’s handbook and tree information guide in one. You will also receive a 33% discount on more than 100 trees and shrubs, and a copy of The Tree Book— our catalog with planting and care instructions.

The Arbor Day Foundation and our partners have now engaged in 59 Rain Forest Rescue projects in eight countries. The pleasure knowing that your donation will help to provide valuable education and sustainable economic incentives for farmers to preserve and restore rain forests through green agroforestry initiatives — such as shade-grown Arbor Day Specialty Coffee production, for one example — is remarkable.

In addition, Rain Forest Rescue is supporting an effort in Madagascar to reverse the destruction of forest habitat that is home to critically endangered lemurs and other wildlife species found nowhere else on earth.

The Ready Women,” as they call themselves, are transforming entire communities. One such example is that of Suzanne Boahariva, the mother of seven children who can now send her youngest to school with the income earned from the reforestation project.  Additionally, the reforestation project is restoring habitat for lemurs, and other animals that depend on the rain forest.

With the generous support of Arbor Day Foundation members, we’ve made a commitment to plant 250,000 trees in Madagascar each year.

Moreover, your membership donation helps fund programs like Tree City USA, Nature Explore and Replanting our National Forests.
