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 planting replacement trees indigenous to a particular damaged area. 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.


For each $68.00 contribution, you will receive a Penny Pines Certificate from National Garden Clubs, Inc. Your Club’s contribution may be made in honor or in memory of ONE individual, organization, or theme. (Certificates will be issued according to information listed on the form below).

Donating to the Penny Pines Reforestation / Forest Education Program:
