Plow and Hearth donates 136,000 trees to Virginia

Madison-based Plow and Hearth has donated 136,000 tree seedlings for planting in spring 2014 around the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Since partnering with the Virginia Department of Forestry in 1991, Plow and Hearth has donated more than 2.73 Million trees that help clean the air, protect our waterways and enhance the quality of life across the state.

VDOF Forester Jack Kauffman said, “Plow and Hearth cares deeply about the community and has a tremendous track record in this regard.  The company’s ‘Planting Two For One’ program donates two tree seedlings for every one used in the production of its catalogue.  The Virginia Department of Forestry gets the donated seedlings into the hands of private landowners, schools and other groups so that they can be planted each spring.  The trees absorb carbon dioxide; prevent pollutants from fouling our waterways; provide shade in the summer; are esthetically pleasing year ‘round, and provide more than 5,000 forest products we use every day.  It’s a terrific partnership!”

Plow and Hearth President John Haydock said, “Plow and Hearth is proud to be able to plant two trees for every one used in the production of the catalogue. Our longstanding partnership with the Virginia Department of Forestry enables us to give back to the community. We support all the values that healthy forests provide, values that we can appreciate every day from our Madison office.”
