S4E2 — Planting 500 Million Trees in Five Years in Neighborhoods and Forests of Greatest Need with Ben Wilinsky of the Arbor Day Foundation

May 11, 2022

I speak with Ben Wilinsky on the technology the Arbor Day Foundation is using to plant their next 500 million trees.

This week, I am joined by Ben Wilinsky, Director of Partnerships and Innovation at the Arbor Day Foundation, to discuss how the Arbor Day Foundation is planting 500 million trees in five years to celebrate its 50th anniversary, how they’ll target their tree-planting efforts in neighborhoods and forests of greatest need, the role NatureQuant’s NatureScore™ data will play, why Ben is optimistic about greening communities, and which technologies he thinks will realize the Arbor Day Foundation’s mission to “inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees”.
