Dave Matthews Band is inviting fans to enter a contest to help plant trees around the globe through donations to The Nature Conservancy via The Bama Works Fund.


Having fully funded the planting of a million trees in 2020, Dave Matthews Band is on a mission to plant a million more in an effort to restore healthy forests, curb the effects of climate change, provide clean air and fresh drinking water, and secure homes for thousands of species of plants and animals.

The effort is in support of The Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees program, a forest restoration effort that will plant trees in the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, China, Kenya and Tanzania.
