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.

We want to hear from you. Please take one minute to answer a few questions in our brief survey.

We invite you to share these messages of thanks from Verizon employees with your fellow wildland firefighters or any associations, clubs, groups, or teams who you believe would appreciate seeing them.

Thanks for all you do to keep our Forests safe beautiful and natural. I know that there is a LOT that you all do that we don't see or know about. I grew up near the Sequoia National Park and have seen many Forrest service staff hard at work.

The longleaf pine ecosystem is one of the most biologically diverse in North America, with an understory that can hold up to 40 plant species per square yard.

It is so important to stop and smell the roses and take in the view. The rustling creek, breeze blowing my hair, cerulean butterfly, taste of crisp, cool air and countless other images flooded my mind as I strolled down the trail in my neighborhood. It is comforting to know that the Forest Foundation will always provide us with the space we need.

I recently went to the Arapaho National Forest for a quick hike up to St. Mary's Glacier. Whoa! What a hike, short and sweet. But it took my breath away! Literally. I hope every dollar for that parking is well received. Totally worth the amenities and upkeep! I hope more find passion and love for keeping these forests and parks beautiful!

I so admire the cleanliness of our national parks. I visit as many as I can during my personal time, mainly around the Tonoto, Prescott, and Coconino areas. It's like a recharging station for me and knowing that there are so many people who look after, love, and care for these wonderful areas warms my heart! Thank you!

Today, longleaf pine habitat exists on less than 5 percent of its historic range in the U.S. South. Planting longleaf pine on National Forests supports the expansion of this critical native species.

Dear U.S Forest Service personnel, Thank you all for keeping our forest and wild life healthy, safe and enjoyable for all of us. Your efforts never go unnoticed.

We have been impacted here in NM with all the wild fires and without all you things would have been much worse. Your work does not go unnoticed. Thank you all so much.
