USDA Secretary Perdue Statement on President Trump’s Trillion Trees EO

(Washington, D.C., October 13, 2020) – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued the following statement following President Trump signing the Executive Order Establishing the One Trillion Trees Interagency Council:

“The Trillion Tree Executive Order signed today by President Trump further demonstrates the Administration’s commitment and leadership in ensuring our national forests are healthy and productive so they can continue to meet the needs of citizens and communities, both now and into the future,” said Secretary Sonny Perdue. “When I was growing up on my family farm, my father always taught me to appreciate that ‘when it comes to the land, we want to leave it better than we found it.’ The President’s Executive Order will do just that – leave it better than we found it and help bolster the 193 million acres of National Forest System lands to promote recreation, enjoyment, and sustainable economic prosperity across broad sectors of the rural economy.”
