Eddie Bauer nears 5 million mark. (Clippings).

Specialty retailer Eddie Bauer is closing in on its goal of planting 5 million trees through Global ReLeaf. Since 1995 the company's "Add a dollar, Plant a tree" program has planted more than 4.5 million trees in close to 100 projects over 25 states and four Canadian provinces. That's enough trees to reforest about 9,000 acres.

The "Add a dollar, Plant a tree" program allows customers to add one dollar to their store, catalog, or online purchases, thereby planting one tree in a Global ReLeaf ecosystem restoration project.

Among the Global ReLeaf projects sponsored by Eddie Bauer this year are:

* a multi-year effort to plant 100,000 trees in the Mountains to Sound Greenway in Washington state. The greenway will link urban and rural lands along I-90 from Seattle up and over the Cascade Mountains. The project will preserve sensitive salmon habitat and diversify tree cover.

* the planting of 280,000 Atlantic white cedar, cypress, oak, and tupelo to reforest a 1,800-acre tract in Virginia's Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Sprawl is encroaching on the area surrounding the refuge and site restoration is crucial for the long-term viability of black bear, endangered southeastern short-tailed shrew, and other wildlife populations.

* the planting of 50,000 trees near Sudhury, Ontario to restore a landscape severely damaged by industrial pollution. The trees are among hundreds of thousands the retailer has planted in Canada since beginning its partnership with Global ReLeaf.
