Imagine planting trees in communities that thrive for years

 
AFL believes in protecting our environment by providing trees in our communities. Trees provide shelter and food for wildlife, keep homes cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter and make our communities more attractive. AFL’s tree plantings commemorate special visits, milestones or special occasions such as Arbor Day or Earth Day.

Every five years, AFL sets a long-term goal for planting trees. Having met our first objective of 5,000 trees in five years, AFL’s new goal is 12,000 trees in five years. And while we are well on our way to meeting this milestone, our next goal will be even bigger!
