Do What You Love and Give Back When You Can!

   You may have noticed lately that forest fires seem to run rampant in the southwestern United States every summer. Forests provide a host of benefits, including better air quality, recreational opportunities and even jobs in many industries. I was raised to love and appreciate the outdoors and I've made it a goal of mine to help protect them. 
   That's why Textbook Tactics is joining together with the US Forest Service and the National Forest Foundation to plant and raise 10,000 pine tree seedlings to help the reforestation efforts in  Eastern Arizona. The seeds for this project will be donated by the Forest Service and the soil and greenhouse space to grow the trees will be donated by local nurseries. The seeds will be planted later this year by local volunteers. They will be cared for by members of the Textbook Tactics family until October of 2013 when they will be transferred to the US Forest Service to be planted. If you are interested in getting involved in our reforestation efforts send us a message via this blog or the website, and let us know.
