As wood furniture makers, we have always been driven by a mission of forest conservation. Thanks to the support of our customers we’ve been able to plant over 60,000 trees. We partner with non-profits that plant trees in areas most vulnerable to deforestation. Our favorite charity is Forests For Monarchs FFM. I volunteer as VP of the group and we travel to Mexico occasionally to plant trees as part of a reforestation project.
Nina and I Head to Mexico Next Week
Nina and I leave for Michoacan, Mexico next week to work with FFM and the local people in their efforts to plant trees and ensure the future of the monarch’s over-wintering grounds.

How You Can Help the Monarchs
At Vermont Woods Studios, we’re a small company. We know we can’t move the reforestation needle alone — we all need to help. If you’ve read all the way to the bottom of this page then you are a fellow tree hugger & wildlife lover. Please consider supporting Forests for Monarchs. Help restore forests and bring the monarch butterfly back from the edge of extinction. Thanks for reading!
