As Earth Day approaches many companies, indviduals, politicians, and eco-consicience folks will be thinking about what they can do to keep making positive impacts on the planet this year. As a company who cares deeply about the environment and works in the beautiful outdoors of Colorado each and every single day we put thought in to this topic all year long. Taking care of the environment often means removing dead trees or keeping your trees healthy and maintained. We love what we do and our “office” aka the trees are always on our minds.
As wildfires have ravaged many parts of Colorado, leaving behind burnt landscapes and destroyed ecosystems. The Spring Creek fire near La Veta, the Troublesome Fire in Grand County, and the Cameron Peak Fire near Fort Collins are the three burn areas alone consumed over 200,000 hectares of forests in Colorado.
We have partnered with the incredible non-profit called One Tree Planted. One Tree Planted makes it simple to plant trees and support incredible projects across the world. One Tree Planted have planted over 92.7 million trees in more than 80 countries across the globe since 2014. In 2022, they more than doubled their impact from 2021 – with 52.7 million trees.
One way to counterbalance the negative impact of removing or trimming trees is by planting new ones. For every tree that we remove or trim, we will be planting one with One Tree Planted. We have pledged a minimum of 500 trees specifically to the three burn areas in Colorado (Spring Creek Fire, Troublesome Fire and The Cameron Peak Fire).
Choosing Colorado Trees to trim or remove your trees is all you need to do to support this reforestation project! It’s as simple as that. If you’d like to do more you can also contribute more (just $1 plants a tree!) by clicking here to support our fundraiser.
