We can have forest-to-community health…with your help. 

Evergreen is nonprofit forestry education foundation that produces educational science-based content in the form of our website, publications, and books.

We depend on contributions and special projects to continue our 35+ years of rigorous work. We are a small team with a mission to advance the support of science-based forest policy and practice. Our costs include printing, research, distribution, collaboration, and design of materials to articulate the need for actively managed forests.

When you support Evergreen, 100% of your tax-deductible contribution goes toward extending our reach and amplifying the voice for actively managed forests and lands – in a manner appropriate for the landscape – and addressing the wildfire pandemic.

Like our book? Appreciate our work? Help us ensure we can continue Evergreen’s work for another 35 years.

Decide what you want from your forests…
