Treeline Project LLC was founded to help protect and grow high elevation forests in Colorado and surrounding Western lands. For every hat sold Treeline Project will plant five trees in an area in need.
Over the past decade, America has done an amazing job replanting its disappearing forests. Despite 90% of the United States’ original forests having been destroyed, the country has actually seen an increase in its total forest cover. While deforestation continues to exist throughout the nation, they have been very good at replanting those trees. American forests are home to over 33,000 plant and animal species, and we rely on them for over 2.5 million jobs, amounting to $102 billion of our GDP.
However, our forests still need your help. Colorado specifically endured 12 major wildfires in 2013 that destroyed over 107,000 football fields worth of land. Planting in Colorado is necessary to reverse the insurmountable damage that these fires have done. Every tree planted in Colorado helps protect local animals and people alike, and is vital to maintaining the beauty of the Colorado Rockies.
We hope that our Treeline Project story helps shed light on this issue and more people become aware. The more people talking about this issue the better chance our forests have. With every hat purchased through Treeline Project, five trees will be planted in a forest in need. By planting more trees in these forests, aside from cooling the area, will provide a habitat for local wildlife and filtering water.
WHERE ARE THE TREES PLANTED?
We purchase our trees from One Tree Planted who plant on behalf of Treeline Project. One Tree Planted is a non-profit 501(c)3 (established in 2014 in Vermont) on a mission to reforest our planet and provide education, awareness and engagement on the importance of trees.
Treeline Project is currently buying trees for the reforestation of forests in Colorado that were impacted by wildfires.
Started as only an idea in 2013, Treeline Project LLC has already helped plant trees in the summer of 2014. Our strongest marketing is our supporters who love to tell our story. Our goal at Treeline Project is to make high quality hats that have a story to tell. Be part of our story & help spread the Treeline Project mission.
