PLANTING TREES IN MICHIGAN
We proudly partner with The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance to plant trees in Michigan! Our annual, collaborative fundraising initiative provides us and any establishment that serves Arbor Brewing Co. beer the opportunity to join our conservation efforts. With everyone’s support, we are able to do a lot of good for the state we love.
In 2019 we raised close to $10,000 and planted over 3,000 trees in Michigan!
Trees act as natural water filters, stream bank stabilizers, habitats for birds and much more. By planting trees in Washtenaw County and across Western Michigan, we are able to protect and preserve both water and air quality.
Did you know? One tree can lift as much as 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in one day. Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rain water as well as protecting groundwater and land around rivers, lakes, and streams. Want to learn more?
So far, we’ve planted 3,000 trees in the following areas:
25 Mature Trees in Dolph Nature Area, Ann Arbor
30 Mature Trees in Meyer Preserve, Ypsilanti
UPCOMING: October 29. 2020: 3,100 trees for a Riparian Restoration with Trout Unlimited in Rockford, MI
While our 2020 fundraising season was postponed due to COVID-19, we hope that our 2021 fundraising season will span from March – April. A portion of the proceeds from our seasonal spring beers will go towards planting more trees in 2020! We proudly donate to The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance.
