Timberland Marks a Milestone in its Reforestation Project by Planting its Two Millionth Tree in Horqin Desert

Timberland’s reforestation of Horqin is a step toward reducing the harmful effects of sandstorms affecting North Asia.

Timberland is committed to protecting the outdoors, and helping to create a more sustainable future for people around the globe. A key area of focus has been tree planting; since 2001, the company has planted more than 7.3 million trees, including two million in Horqin.

Timberland’s reforestation project has seen over 700 hectares (or 7 sq.km) of trees planted – enough to fill 1,200 football fields.

Volunteers from Timberland gathered to plant the two-millionth tree in China’s Horqin desert this week, a milestone in Timberland’s reforestation effort and part of the company’s commitment to protecting the outdoors. Here the volunteers pass buckets to water the newly planted saplings
