At Laserzone we are dedicated to environmental sustainability. One of the many ways we commit ourselves is through advocating sustainable initiatives and organizations that promote a greener tomorrow. One such organization is the national forest foundation. Below is a little more about an organization we recommend everyone get involved in:
Founded by Congress in 1991, the National Forest Foundation works with the U.S. Forest Service to care for these natural treasures for the millions of visitors they receive each year and for you, and those who come after you.
The National Forest Foundation brings people together to restore and enhance our National Forests and Grasslands. As the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, we engage America in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the National Forest System. We also administer private gifts of funds and land for the benefit of the National Forests.
In helping the U.S. Forest Service fulfill its mission "to maintain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations" we work in close collaboration with local people and communities. We believe that communities should play a leading role in determining the future of the 193 million acres that make up our National Forests and Grasslands.
Restoring the Health and Vitality of America's National Forests
From fresh water to clean air to sweeping vistas of green, America's National Forests offer an incredible array of beauty and values. With all that these lands give us, it's only natural to consider ways that we can give back.
Planting trees on National Forests is a gift that provides benefits for generations. Trees clean the air, produce oxygen and sequester carbon dioxide. They help to clean water for the 123 million Americans who depend on National Forests every time they turn on the tap. Healthy forests sustain critical habitat for diverse wildlife and enhance our cherished outdoor recreation pursuits.
Wildfire, disease and insect outbreaks, hurricanes, and past land uses have impacted millions of acres of forests across the country. Through the NFF's tree-planting program individuals, small businesses, corporations, even school and community groups can help reforest these magnificent lands. participation is easy and every dollar plants at least one tree!
