In honor of the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day, DraftKings is celebrating the environment & reaching its goal of funding the planting of 1M trees in collaboration with the Arbor Day Foundation and Gisele Bündchen to address areas in need of reforestation & improve the world we live in. 

DraftKings is thrilled to have the support of their community members, customers, partners, board members and employees who have helped make this effort possible.

The impact of DraftKings’ tree planting initiative goes beyond just the environment. DraftKings’ and Arbor Day’s reforestation efforts aim to address five main reforestation rationales conducive to reforestation:
