Girl Scout Tree Promise


Join Girl Scouts across the country on our mission to protect the planet from the effects of climate change! With the Elliott Wildlife Values Project and American Forests, GSUSA is launching a bold tree planting and conservation initiative. Girl Scouts is setting out to plant five million trees across the country in five years, and to protect and honor new and existing trees. Not only is this great for wildlife, it will also help ease the effects of climate change.
