Rockler Woodworking and Hardware's partnership with the Hardwood Forestry Fund will result in the planting of 10,000 trees this spring. The Earth Day effort involves two separate planting projects â€“ one in northwestern Indiana and another in southeastern Ohio.
Both planting sites are open to the public and promote education and awareness of the sustainability of forested land. Visits by local schools and the general public number in the thousands annually.
The Hardwood Forestry Fund recently recognided Rockler's past contributions to hardwood tree planting with the Gifford Pinchot Award, named after the founder of the American Forest Conservation, Gifford Pinchot.
A not-for-profit, educational organisation, 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.
