Did you know one single large tree can absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide in a year, transforming it into a day's worth of oxygen for up to four people?

Thanks to the hands-on efforts of the Arbor Day Foundation’s global network of planting partners, International Paper and the Arbor Day Foundation together planted and distributed 169,705 trees in 2023 across 13 projects. Since 2019, more than 568,000 trees have been planted and distributed to restore 1,143 acres of forests and communities around the world.

All these tree plantings result in real benefits for the communities and ecosystems where we plant them.

As we recognize Arbor Day on Friday, April 26, IP is honored to have a partnership with the Foundation to ensure families in areas affected by natural disasters can rebuild the natural beauty and enjoy the many benefits of urban forestry through tree distribution and replanting efforts.
