For every tree we used in 2021, we’re planting two in 2022.*

That’s equal to

2.33 million trees.

We’re growing a better tomorrow, together.

Green Line Divider

At Clayton, we’re committed to building a better tomorrow, not only for our communities but for our planet. We want to drive change and do good to support and inspire the families, communities, and workplaces we serve.

That’s why we’re grateful to partner with the Arbor Day Foundation®. Together, we’ll plant 2.33 million trees in environmentally degraded areas — more than double the number of trees Clayton used to build homes in 2021.

By planting native trees in high-need areas, we’ll create lasting impact.

Attainable homes make communities stronger. So do trees.

Blue Line Divider

As a family-focused company that builds quality, attainable homes, we know home is foundational to a better life. We’re here to help make better tomorrows possible for more people, and that means acting now to help restore and strengthen our ecosystems. Whether in backyards, parks or forests, trees fortify our communities, purify our air, and play a vital role in the fight against climate change. Plus, they make the world a more beautiful place, too.

A responsibility and opportunity

Blue Line Divider

Each new day presents an opportunity to honor the connection we share with the natural world and recognize the responsibility we have to the environment. The 2.33 million trees we plant this year will help rejuvenate forest ecosystems, supporting the communities and families we serve.

Our Impact

Three endangered species sheltered

By replanting native tree species, we'll help provide havens for endangered wildlife like the red-cockaded woodpecker, indigo snake and gopher tortoise.

Seven waterways supported

We're planting trees along seven rivers in Oregon and Washington, helping to fortify the health and biodiversity of watersheds.

Over 2.2 Million Tons of Sequestered CO2

The Arbor Day Foundation estimates that the native species planted this year will sequester over 2.2 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere over a 40-year period.

Where are we planting the trees?

Blue Line Divider

Together, Clayton and the Arbor Day Foundation will help restore and revitalize forest ecosystems in Longleaf Habitat and Wildlife Management Areas in Georgia, Michigan State Lands, the Pacific Northwest and at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. By planting native trees in environmentally degraded areas, we can help foster a more sustainable, thriving future for our communities and for our planet.
