From all of us at Rapid Axis, we want to wish you a happy holiday season!
The holidays are a time for giving back, and as we reflect on the year and all that has happened, we want to take this opportunity to recognize a cause near and dear to our hearts: The National Forest Foundation.
The foundation works on behalf of the American public to inspire personal and meaningful connections to our National Forests, the centerpiece of America’s public lands. Each year, Rapid Axis donates a portion of the amount in total billed jobs to the USDA’s National Plant a Tree Program. It is our goal to plant as many trees as possible each year. From 2020-2021 we planted a total of 2,800 trees, and we are proud to announce that 2022 is our best year yet.
We’re so proud of our amazing Rapid Axis employees for helping us plant over 2,000 trees! Rapid Axis is dedicated to environmental sustainability, and this donation helps us maintain our commitment to being a responsible company that takes care of its environment. We are proud of our efforts to help restore balance in our environment and hope you will join us in helping to make a difference!
About The National Forest Foundation
The National Forest Foundation leads forest conversation efforts and promotes responsible recreation on America’s 193 million acres of National Forests. They believe National Forests, and all that they offer, are an American treasure and are vital to the health of communities. The NFF’s main goals are to:
RESTORE ecosystems through on-the-ground conservation.
UNITE communities to improve our National Forests and Grasslands.
SUSTAIN the ability of individuals and communities to serve as stewards of these lands.
ENGAGE Americans in the enjoyment and restoration of our treasured landscapes.
Every year, more and more of our National Forests are affected by natural disturbances that cause deforestation. Wildfires, insects, and disease – exacerbated by climate change – are jeopardizing the very things that make our forests special. Planting trees helps restore forest cover to these lands, ensuring that our forests can continue to provide wildlife habitat, supply water to millions of Americans, and help fight climate change. On Earth Day 2018, the NFF launched a campaign to plant 50 million trees in National Forests across the U.S. They are the only organization partnering with the U.S. Forest Service to publicly commit to a reforestation effort of this scale on National Forests. Through this campaign, they are not only planting trees and restoring forests. They are also connecting everyone to these important public landscapes.
As a continued commitment to environmental sustainability, Rapid Axis will continue to donate a portion of the total amount in billed jobs to USDA National Forest’s Plant a Tree Program. This is a great opportunity for us to give back and support this program by planting trees in some of our most beloved National Forests.
We are so grateful for the amazing and generous community that helped us plant so many trees in 2022. There’s still more work to be done, so if you would like to support The National Forest Foundation this holiday season, see ways that you can give back HERE. Your contribution will help ensure that our national forests and grasslands stay healthy for future generations.
