Plant Trees in
Our National Forests
Colorado Home Electricians is dedicated to putting environmental sustainability into action as a small business partner of the National Forest Foundation, which is leading natural solutions to climate change through large-scale reforestation on public lands.
50 Million for Our Forests
The 50 Million for Our Forests campaign launched on Earth Day, 2018 to help meet the immense reforestation needs facing our National Forests. Since then, the NFF has planted more than 19.7 million trees, with 7.3 million planted in 2021.
Tree planting helps restore forests after severe wildfires, insects and disease and other natural disturbances while fighting climate change, conserving wildlife habitats, and ensuring healthy watersheds for everyone.
CHE donates a portion of every whole house fan sold in support of the NFF’s 50 Million for Our Forests campaign, the largest campaign in support of reforesting our publicly-owned National Forests.
CHE is proud to further our commitment to environmental sustainability and our public lands by partnering with the National Forest Foundation and investing in healthy forests.
Together, we'll restore thousands of acres of our National Forests for today and for future generations.

How To Get Involved
You can contribute to The NFF's 50 Million for Our Forests tree planting campaign by donating directly to the campaign, or purchasing an eco-friendly whole house fan from Colorado Home Electricians.

The NFF plants one tree for every dollar donated. Your donations help provide seedlings that are then planted by the Forest Service. For every dollar donated, the Forest Service invests $2 in these important projects in the form of seed sourcing, identifying the areas in most need of tree planting, contracting the labor, and providing follow-up care to ensure the seedlings survive.
