Through a partnership with the Division of Forestry, we are helping Indiana’s forests grow, one tree at a time, with the Indiana Tree Project. Healthy forests in Indiana promote wildlife habitats, clean air and an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. It is estimated that 85 percent of Indiana was once forested. Today, only 19 percent of the state is forested. The Indiana Tree Project is much more than just planting trees. Through this project we are adding new acreage to Indiana’s State Forests. Planting one million new trees means adding 1,000 acres of new forested land.

Promote healthy forests
When you support the Indiana Tree Project we provide you with an official tree certificate to demonstrate your support for the smart management of Hoosier forests. It includes the coordinates for the acre on which your tree is, or will be, planted and the number of your tree among the one million.
During the 2018 Indiana State Fair we launched the Tree Shirt which allows you to proudly show your support of healthy forests in Indiana. Due to the success of the original tree shirt, we made a new design for you to enjoy. You can purchase the tree shirt through the State Park Inns Online Store. The original tree shirt is still available, but we thought you would like to have a few options.
The Indiana Tree Project is also offering corporate sponsorships. If your organization is looking for an opportunity where your staff can volunteer, we will help you coordinate a tree planting day. In addition to your staff helping grow Indiana’s State Forests, they will learn about healthy forest management and have the opportunity to experience a guided tour through one of Indiana’s best-managed forests.
