Plant a Tree This Arbor Day

Over the last decade, wildfires have consumed 66 million acres. That's the equivalent of burning every acre in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and southern Maine.*

Fire is a natural necessity for the health of forests. But climate change and other factors are increasing the frequency and intensity of megafires. This overwhelms the forests’ ability to regenerate.

That’s why State Farm is supporting the planting of trees in neighborhoods across the country on Arbor Day and every day.
