Keystone 10 Million Tree Partnership


The Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership is a collaborative effort of more than 100 organizations, businesses, and citizens committed to improving Pennsylvania's ecology, economy and future by planting 10 million trees by the end of 2025. Roughly 19,000 miles of our rivers and streams are damaged by pollution and trees are the most cost-effective tools for cleaning and protecting our waters. Meeting this massive restoration challenge will take many hands—landowners willing to plant trees, volunteers willing to help, conservation partners connecting them, and funding to make it all possible. To schedule a tree planting or sign up to volunteer, visit tenmilliontrees.org.

Earn our new “Clean Water Grows on Trees” Girl Scout fun patch by exploring the various types of trees in your neighborhood and learning how they help #SaveTheBay and its rivers and streams!
