TAPPI Trees, a partnership with Trees Atlanta

Over the last 100 years, the amount of United States forestland has remained at about 750 million acres, despite the US population tripling in that same period.  Not coincidentally, over that same time, TAPPI and its members have been dedicated to the technical advancement of the Pulp, Paper and related partner industries.   To celebrate the great work the paper industry, TAPPI, and its members have done for forests, we will be doing what we do best, plant trees!

TAPPI and Trees Atlanta are teaming up to plant 100 trees in recognition of the great work men and women have done over the past 100 years preserving beautiful, lush forests that that future generations will enjoy.  To make this a reality we are asking if you would be willing to donate any dollar amount to help us raise $10,000.  TAPPI has seeded, pun intended, $1,000 to get this project going.  Learn more about TAPPI Trees and making a contribution.
