Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has committed to a goal of planting 20,000 new trees through Earth Day efforts in partnership with the Hardwood Forestry Fund. As part of an event that celebrates Earth Day on April 22, Rockler will make a donation to the Hardwood Forestry Fund for every online, catalog, and retail purchase made from April 1 to April 22, 2012 in an effort to plant up to 20,000 trees – double the number achieved last year.

The Hardwood Forestry Fund will use Rockler's monetary donation to plant

trees in the United States on public lands managed by professional foresters. A not-for-profit, educational organization, the Hardwood Forestry Fund targets planting and management of commercially valuable hardwoods, including black cherry, black walnut, red oak, hard maple, hickory, ash, and others. All trees planted by the Hardwood Forestry Fund are included in a management plan, harvest, and regeneration schedule.

Woodworkers interested in participating in the Rockler tree-planting programme can purchase items at Rockler retail stores, place orders via catalogue or online at Rockler.com from April 1-22 to contribute.
