Government Paid to Plant Trees

During a span of three years, his Temporary Emergency Relief Administration put thousands of unemployed New Yorkers to work on a $19-million bond act program to reforest one million acres of land. The concept worked well in New York, and then-Governor Roosevelt used this pet project to great advantage in his successful presidential campaign. So desperate were the times that, as President, Roosevelt signed no less than 15 emergency acts in his first 90 days in office, with the CCC program proving to be one of the most successful and enduring of the New Deal initiatives.
