Trees for the Future

Everyone needs trees but the link between woodworkers and trees is more apparent than general and, perhaps, even more important. The thing is, most trees take a very long time to grow so it takes a special kind of care for the future to take the time to plant trees. We enjoy the harvest from trees that began to grow a long time ago and we want to be involved in planting trees for the future.

Paul recently spent some time talking Gabriel Hemery of the Sylva Foundation about their Future Forest. Here is the video:

As Paul mentions in the video. We want to contribute to this and have our own Woodworking Masterclasses portion of the Future Forest. We are inviting our members to contribute and we will match those contributions from the profits of the calendar we just released. So, you can contribute in the following ways:

We have now closed contributions. You can still go directly to the Sylva website and support their work.

We think this is important work and we will be updating you as we see progress in this project.

The calendar is really great by the way. The photography, design and printing came out really nice and we think you will enjoy it!

    Amazing idea.

    If anyone knows of an initiative like this near Austin, TX, please let me know. Moved here recently, and I’m still getting the lay of the land. 🙂
