Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program

Trees are an invaluable natural resource. They beautify our neighborhoods, provide habitats for wildlife, and help to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program focuses on large-scale conservation, protection of habitats for wildlife and native species, as well as the restoration and enhancement of public greenspaces. This award-winning environmental stewardship initiative is helping Apache leave a lasting positive impact for current and future generations in the areas where we live and work.

Since 2005, the Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program has provided more than 4.8 million trees to over 900 nonprofit charitable partners and government agencies in the U.S. We donate trees to a wide variety of organizations, including cities, counties, schools, parks, universities, youth associations, wildlife refuges and charitable service groups. In addition to the development and improvement of public parks and greenspaces, community partners often request trees to support a broad range of conservation efforts, including preservation of natural habitats and reforestation.

 

In the 2021 – 2022 season, we collaborated with 66 nonprofit organizations, 28 of which were first-time partners.
