American Forests is a world leader in planting trees for environmental restoration, a pioneer in the science and practice of urban forestry, and a primary communicator of the benefits of trees and forests. We provide action opportunities to targeted audiences to enable them to improve their environment with trees. We do this by using the best science to identify conservation issues, then develop and market practical solutions that individuals and groups can apply. American Forests' targeted audiences are individuals, community groups, government at all levels, educators, and businesses.

American Forests has worked on various projects in Oregon, including assisting with the restoration of the Applegate River Watershed in Southern Oregon. In this region, American Forests planted more than 29,000 trees and shrubs in the area, in order to reduce soil erosion and keep sediment out of the waterways.
