Girl Scout Tree Promise: Plant, protect, and honor 5 million trees by 2026!

Girl Scout Tree Promise™

Join our mission to protect the planet from the effects of climate change.

With the Elliott Wildlife Values Project and American Forests we are launching a bold tree planting and conservation initiative. Girl Scouts is setting out to plant five million trees across the country in five years, and to protect and honor new and existing trees. Not only is this great for wildlife, it will also help ease the effects of climate change.
