Help to Restore Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Forest Canopy!
Our mission is simple: More trees! We believe strongly that increasing the size and diversity of our forest canopy will benefit our country and the environment. Since 1979, Ohio Valley Forestry Fellowship members and volunteers have planted over 120,000 tree seedlings in Southwest Ohio urban centers, roadsides, parks, farmland and surrounding communities. OVFF volunteers have prepared and distributed nearly 400,000 seedlings at our annual March tree giveaway. We’ve teamed with schools, libraries and civic organizations to educate children on the value of healthy forests and tree canopy. We have assisted farmers to convert marginal farmland and pasture to healthy forest, and have partnered with the Department of Transportation to plant hundreds of tree seedlings on southern Ohio highway interchanges.
