Dan Lambe is the president of the Arbor Day Foundation, an organization founded in 1972 that has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees.
During his 15 years with the Foundation, Dan has led the development of innovative programs that expand the organization’s global reach — including international forest restoration efforts and the most recent Tree Cities of the World program. In addition, Dan spearheads the Arbor Day Foundation’s Evergreen Alliance — a strategic group of corporate leaders dedicated to helping the organization meet its recently announced Time for Trees initiative to plant 100 million trees and inspire 5 million tree planters by 2022.
When not educating and empowering people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees, Dan is often training and struggling to complete triathlons or searching for another unique restaurant to explore. He finds any chance possible to travel for fun and adventure with his wife and two fantastic kids.
Cross-sector collaborations help ensure that this high-impact work is carried out with urgency and awareness. Through our Wildfire Restoration Collaborative, eight of our major corporate partners have committed to help drive awareness and action around wildfire recovery. - 3 years ago

At this year’s Sustainable Brands conference in May, we did something that we hadn’t done before — it was an ‘aha’ moment. Sustainable Brands and the Arbor Day Foundation — the world’s largest member-based tree-planting organization — partnered to host the first volunteer experience for conference attendees to get their hands dirty. This urban tree planting event, “ReGreening the Good Life,” was a fitting jump-start to the SB ’17 Detroit conference. More than 55 volunteers from the conference helped plant trees in a downtown Detroit park. - 6 years ago
