Tree Planting Partnerships

Share |

As part of our 70-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 offers customers an opportunity to donate $3, $5 or $10 at checkout to plant trees, restore and build urban parks and support green economic development. 100% of all customer donations and U-Haul matches are forwarded to the Fund.

Since 2007 more than one million U-Haul customers have elected to support The Conservation Fund during their rental transactions. To date 550,000 trees have been planted trapping more than 400,000 tons of CO2. 1,600 acres have been restored and 10 National Wildlife refuges served. Two working forests have been protected and Parks with Purpose have been built in Atlanta and Detroit. To learn more, click here.  

For our Canadian U-Haul customers, U-Haul is honored to partner with Canada’s largest not-for-profit tree organization.  Tree Canada's Grow Clean Air Program facilitates the 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 more than 80 million trees and is still growing

Since launching this partnership in December 2011, 108,000+ U-Haul customers have contributed more than $244,000 to help Grow Clean Air.  Canadians can breathe easier knowing that every tree planted helps to combat climate change, absorb carbon dioxide emissions and produce oxygen. As one example, U-Haul customer contributions directly funded the planting of 5,000 seedlings in Sudbury, Ontario in the fall of 2014. These trees will sequester an estimated 3,767 tons of carbon dioxide over the next 100 years.  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!
