Thank you
U.S. Forest Service

As part of its responsible business plan, Citizen Verizon, Verizon partnered with the National Forest Foundation to thank individuals who have dedicated their professional careers to protecting America’s National Forests—the U.S. Forest Service personnel.

As the effects of climate change exacerbate wildfires and the impacts of COVID-19 spur an unprecedented increase in visitations, Forest Service staff continue to selflessly work and often put their lives in danger to ensure these public lands thrive now and for many generations to come.

In addition to sharing messages of support, encouragement, and thanks from Verizon’s employees, Verizon’s generous grant will plant 100,000 trees on National Forest lands. These native trees will help provide fresh air, clean water, and remove carbon from the environment.

Hi, Thank you so much for all the hard and important work that you do. My favorite National Forest is in Alaska - the Chugach National Forest. I have never seen such a beautiful area - it was truly magnificent.
Thank you to you and your coworkers for keeping these U.S. Forests in such great shape and preserving their beauty.

Hello and Happy National Earth Day month! As a kid I grew up with Smokey the Bear, learning how wild fires can be prevented from human causes. This is still important today! Your work helps educate others and control and contain fires, which helps the environment and air quality for every living being. Thank you for what you do!
