Tree Planting Partnerships

As part of our more than 60-year commitment to conduct business in a socially responsible manner, to help protect the environment and benefit the communities where we live and serve, U-Haul is proud to partner with two distinguished nonprofit organizations: The Conservation Fund and Tree Canada.

For our U-Haul customers in the U.S.A., our partnership with The Conservation Fund’s Go Zero® program offers customers a chance to donate $3, $5 or $10 at checkout to plant trees and offset their moving-related emissions.

To date, more than one million U-Haul customers have elected to offset their emissions, raising more than $3 million to plant 330,000 native trees on behalf of Go Zero and wildlife refuges nationwide. Over the next 100 years those trees will trap an estimated 412,000 tons of carbon dioxide.

In 2013 U-Haul and The Conservation Fund expanded this partnership. 100% of customer contributions and U-Haul matched funds continue to be forwarded to The Conservation Fund to be used toward tree planting, urban restoration and green economic development.

For our Canadian U-Haul customers, U-Haul is happy to partner with Tree Canada, Canada’s largest nonprofit tree organization, to plant and maintain trees in Canada. This partnership has developed the Grow Clean Air Program to facilitate planting and maintaining of native trees throughout Canada. Since 1992, Tree Canada has:

  •  Greened more than 550 schoolyards and established urban forests in more than 375 communities
  • Offset carbon emissions for more than 50 companies and 100+ meetings, events, and conferences
  • Planted nearly 80 million trees and still growing

Within the first year of launching this growing partnership, U-Haul customers contributed more than $10,000, achieving a Bronze Sponsorship level. Canadians can breathe easier knowing that every tree planted helps to combat climate change, absorbing carbon dioxide emissions and producing oxygen. To learn more about Tree Canada, click here.

These tree-planting partnerships allow U-Haul to provide measurable benefits to the communities we serve in both the United States and Canada. Please join us in making a better environment now and for future generations.  Thank you!
