Trees For Life will share in a projected $1 million from OTRGive which will provide vital funds for revegetation. For every $1,000 received we will plant over 1,000 native seedlings on degraded land. These trees will provide habitat for birds and other animals, reduce salinity and erosion, and keep our air clean.
