Pallet Tree Fundraiser Seeds Reforestation In Woolwich

Trees for the Forest: Buy One, Plant One Fundraiser launched at Willow Brae Pallets

WATERLOO — Willow Brae Pallets announced today their pilot project “Trees For the Forest” Fundraiser. The company will be hand crafting one-of-a-kind reclaimed pallet wood trees in a fundraising effort in support of Trees for Woolwich this Christmas season. Company Vice President, Cheryl Weber was inspired to help after learning that Woolwich Township has a greenhouse filled with little trees awaiting planting. “I decided I’d like to help them get more trees planted” Weber stated. For each pallet tree sold, Willow Brae will donate enough money to ensure that a tree is planted.

Inga Rinne, spokesperson for Trees for Woolwich commented, “we are very thrilled to partner with such an innovative company as Willow Brae Pallets to help reforest our region. Creating such charming trees from recycled pallets is such great upcycling.” Trees for Woolwich was started in 2011 with a goal to plant 23,000 trees by 2016. Rinne says, “the financial boost from the sales of these pallet trees will help our volunteers get more trees into the ground next spring”.

The collaborative effort seemed like a natural fit comments Weber, “I liked the fact that each tree made entirely from reclaimed pallet wood would give life to a new tree”. Rinne agrees, “we are very grateful to have the support of Willow Brae Pallets, who recognizes the benefit of trees on our environment and we are prepared to use their creativity to help shape a greener community”.

The trees will be approximately 30”- 40” in height and will retail for $39. Trees go on sale November 24, 2016 and can be purchased at the St. Jacobs Farmers Market (white tented building), or directly from Willow Brae Pallets.
