Crazy to think these tiny saplings will grow into a towering canopy over this incredible sanctuary.
This machine dredged the rows and buried the trees. What a job to be the operator. He's a Tree Father!!!
Here're the rows of trees. The property will be maintained until the end of time with mowed paths.
Thank you for proving it's true what superheroes can do.
Skylar's Dad blesses the future site of Skylar's World Forest.
Thank You for your incredible strength and leadership throughout our journey, Jacob!
thank you sycamore land trust
Our friends at the Sycamore Land Trust were kind enough to create this sign that will mark Skylar's Forest! Thank you so much for being a Trier and we can't wait to make it official on Saturday December 5th. Thank you!
Skylar's family shares a common love for the outdoors. Every weekend they're either hiking, fishing, swimming or simply playing outside. Her forest will be within close driving distance for everyone. Our hope is that visiting Skylar's Forest becomes a family tradition stretching across multiple generations.
Beanblossom Creek runs through Monroe and Brown counties in south-central Indiana, serving as a watershed for the nearly 92 square miles that drain into it. It serves as an important part of the White River watershed, which supplies drinking water for over a million Hoosiers. Plot Coordinates are 39.297078°, -86.603459.
A single tree can capture 3.5 pounds of air pollutants – like ozone, dust and particulate matter – per year. Air pollutants like fine particulate matter are a major cause of asthma and other respiratory problems.
A large tree absorbs 40-50 pounds of carbon dioxide – a greenhouse gas that causes global warming – per year.
American Forests has been restoring forests for more than 140 years. And, while we may be the oldest national conservation organization, our work today is more important than ever. Since 1990 alone, we have planted nearly 60 million trees in forest restoration projects in all 50 states. We have also worked in dozens of cities across America, expanding tree canopy and improving the quality of life for residents.
“I think everybody realizes we’re in a planetary emergency and we need to make changes, and business is the greatest platform for change,” Benioff said. “If you ask what the narrative has been here at Davos, there has been a tremendous narrative around what can we do to improve the state of the world.”
This gift request will be donated to American Forests for the planting of Skylar's Forest. Her forest will have 11,000 new trees, spanning across 20 acres alongside Bean Blossom Creek, Indiana. Your gift will also help with signage, land stewardship, plant maintenance and all other aspects of ensuring the highest quality survival rate
