Our California Wildfire Response: Patio Guys & OneTreePlantedMicah Laremore
For someone growing up in California, few words can evoke more fear and sadness than the word WILDFIRE. I personally have had a friend and a relative that have lost their entire homes, and almost their lives, to the horrid destruction of California wildfires. In this docuseries, our partners OneTreePlanted explore the causes of California wildfires and more importantly how the strategic tree planting efforts of Patio Guys and thousands of other Californians is allowing for a massive reforestation effort that will lead to healthier, more fire resistant forests for future generations. I encourage you to watch the series and consider supporting Patio Guys’ OneTreePlanted initiative by ordering a patio furniture refinish in the month of April. This initiative to plant a tree for every piece refinished in the month of April has already led to the planting of over 2000 trees both here in California and around the globe.
