Description of Activity

Trees are the longest living organisms on earth and supply us with the oxygen we need to live. One acre of trees can eliminate the carbon dioxide that 87,000 miles worth of driving can produce.

There are many, many ways to plant, or support planting, new trees. For example:

You can buy a tree from The Arbor Day Foundation, support the One Dollar, One Tree campaign of One Tree Planted, or donate to the The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign.

Engaging the entire congregation in the fundraising for one tree, or the One Dollar, One Tree movement can be as simple as a one-time collection, or a several weeks-long campaign. Provide information before fundraising on the importance of trees and celebrate your successful campaign afterwards.
