American Forests protects and restores forests, helping to preserve the health of our planet for the benefit of its inhabitants.
Forests are healthy and forest cover is expanding, both in urban and rural areas.
Ecosystem services (such as clean water, carbon sequestration, fish and wildlife habitat and sustainable recreation) are given high priority in the management of public and private forests.
People recognize that healthy forests are vital to life.
Threatened forests are restored to health.
Major threats to forests, such as climate change, invasive species, insects, disease, intense wildfire and conversion of forestlands to non-forest uses, are proactively addressed by policymakers.
