Trees for Wildlife – The Gift that Keeps Giving
This Giving Tuesday, for every $10 that you donate to protect wildlife across the country, one native tree will be planted. You have the opportunity to join us in the fight to protect wildlife, while also directly providing wildlife with food, water, and shelter for years to come.
How could wildlife use the incredible gift of trees? Here are a few examples.
A young black bear will eat the acorns of the Southern Live Oak.
A red-cockaded woodpecker will create a nest cavity in mature longleaf pine forests, and also forage for insects beneath trees’ bark.
A Northern Spotted Owl will make a nest for their young in tree hollows, which can be found in old-growth forests, particularly Douglas-fir forests. They tend to prefer snags, or standing dead trees.
A moose family will snack on a red maple, a tasty treat enjoyed by these and other wildlife.
A catfish will spawn in the submerged hollow logs of the Bald Cypress tree.
A ruffed grouse will find a home and food under the branches of the quaking aspen.
An Indiana bat will take advantage of the loose bark of the Shagbark Hickory tree to make a snug nest.
Wood frogs will find shelter in leaf litter in forests in the northeast and Alaska.
Arboreal salamanders will lay their eggs in damp logs found in coastal live oak woodlands.
Millions of wild animals rely on trees every day, to provide food, water, shelter, and a place to raise young. Provide for wildlife for years to come – donate today and for every $10 you donate to the National Wildlife Federation, a tree will be planted.
