Home to the namesake Appalachian Trail, more than 150 tree species can be found in the region, making it one of the most diverse ecological regions in North America. Unfortunately, the resource wealth of the region also means much of the forest has been degraded by mining and timber operations. Over the years, an estimated 83% of habitat has been lost. This project is a 5-year, multi-state effort. Planting trees here will also benefit nearby communities as hydrological function will be improved, thus providing them with better quality water. This project also creates meaningful jobs in communities suffering from high rates of poverty and unemployment. Our planting partners are also implementing conservation practices to ensure the forests are maintained sustainably for many more years to come.
As industry pioneers for over 40 years, we’ve always been driven to put the environment first. We partnered with One Tree Planted after the launch of our Waste To Warmth pellet brand. Not all pellet fuel is created equal but with our formula being 100% renewable along with the many misconceptions of pellet fuel in general, we set out on a goal to change that narrative. With every wood or pellet appliance sold, The Vulcan Group will be donating to One Tree Planted. Along with our own separate donations, our goal is to reach the ‘one million tree challenge.’ Not only are we creating renewable fuels, we want to make sure we are also doing our part in the efforts against deforestation and protecting the environment we all love so much.
We’re all in this together!
