American Forests

Location: SOUTH, Texas

American Forests is a nationwide organization whose mission is to create healthy and resilient forests, from cities to wilderness, that deliver essential benefits for climate, people, water, and wildlife. American Forests provides reforestation capacity to public agencies and private land managers throughout the United States. In Texas, American Forests is focusing its efforts in the Rio Grande Valley region to restore native thornforest, Texas’s most species-diverse ecosystem. Through funding and seed collection efforts, American Forests has developed the region’s first native community forest, formed the Thornforest Conservation Partnership, and provided support for restoration outplanting at Lower Rio Grande Valley NWR and Laguna Atascosa NWR. American Forests hopes to expand its reforestation efforts to other regions in Texas in the coming years.
