Penny Pines Program
NGC and the USDA Forest Service are proud to have formed a
partnership sustaining our national and urban forests through this
reforestation/forest education program.
Your Garden Club can participate in a meaningful and practical
conservation project by contributing
$68.00 to a Penny Pines plantation as part of the costs of
replanting replacement trees indigenous to a particular
damaged area. Whether by fire or by other natural catastrophe, pine
trees and other trees are replaced. You may designate a specific
State you wish to have benefit from this contribution.
Under a Conservation agreement, the Forest Service will do the
planting, using your donation together with Federal funds, and will
provide to the plantation the same protection from fires, insects,
and disease given other forested areas. The plantations are a part
of the regular National Forest reforestation program planted on
burned-over and brush-covered areas which are potentially
productive timberlands. Planting sites are selected by the
Supervisor of each National Forest. These plantations provide soil
protection, watershed protection, soil stabilization, future
harvestable timber, as well as beauty and shade for recreation.
State regions, districts, clubs and/or individuals may
participate in this program by donating in multiples of $68. A $68
donation may be made in honor or in memory of ONE individual,
organization or theme.
