Cypress Creek Partners with National Forest Foundation to Plant Thousands of Trees

Durham, NC – March 4, 2024 -- Cypress Creek Renewables is pleased to announce its partnership with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) and has provided a donation that will be used to plant more than 17,000 trees. 

“Cypress Creek is excited to join the NFF’s conservation efforts and mission to bring people together to restore and enhance U.S. National Forests and Grasslands,” Seija Stratton, Director of Environmental Services for Cypress Creek Renewables, said. 

The NFF was founded in 1992 through a charter by the U.S. Congress to be the official non-profit partner of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). Since 2018, the NFF has planted almost 33 million trees on 63 National Forests, across 26 states. Projects are planned and executed by qualified biologists at the USFS using science and technology to increase the success of every seedling planted (overall survival rate is estimated to be 80% or higher). Trees are planted, and monitored for survival, on public lands maintained in perpetuity for public enjoyment, wildlife habitat, and water quality. 

"We are excited to partner with Cypress Creek Renewables to plant trees on U.S. National Forests. Thanks to our amazing partners, the NFF's Reforestation Program is able to restore wildlife habitat, protect clean air and water, and mitigate climate change,” said Caroline Chouinard, The National Forest Foundation, Reforestation Program. 

Cypress Creek’s donation, made earlier this year, will result in a new tree being planted for every tree removed from its project sites commencing construction in 2023, resulting in a net-zero woodlands impact.
