It's as simple as 1, 2, tree.
We spent 365 days celebrating the International Year of Forests, but this is one celebration that never has to end! Trees and forests provide clean air, a renewable natural resource, natural habitats for hundreds of species, and even protected places to enjoy – we literally couldn’t live without them.
There are lots of ways to stay involved with the trees and forests in your area and throughout the U.S. And not just during the International Year of Forests. There are things you can do all the time! You can start by keeping up with some of our forestry partners.

Event Host Toolkit
During 2011, the campaign encouraged Americans to host events in celebration of the International Year of Forests. At the end of 2011, 115 events were held in 34 states! This is thanks in part to this site, which offered an IYOF toolkit including all the necessary materials to host an event from an Event Host Guide, Sample Press Release to Event Signage and Collateral (t-shirt templates and more!).
Calendar of Events
They might be old. But they love to party. Our nation and the world celebrated our trees and forests in 2011.
