Tree Species Restoration Supported
The Oak Hill Fund believes that restoring native tree species will directly improve our natural ecosystems, as well as our society. Diminished Tree Species Grants are provided to nonprofit organizations working in the continental United States. The Fund supports the following efforts: active restoration of diminished continental U.S. forest species (examples include Eastern Hemlock, Balsam Fir, American Chestnut, and Longleaf Pine); protection of native tree habitat through forest land preservation (can include property easements, as well as creation of newly preserved lands through either state/federal acquisition); and science-based research, seed orchard development, and other associated expenses involved in species restoration. Online letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year. Visit the Fund’s website for more information.
