MEDINA, MN - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware, in partnership with the Hardwood Forestry Fund, plans to plant 20,000 new trees in observance of Earth Day.

The supplier of woodworking equipment and supplies said it will make a monetary donation to the Hardwood Forestry Fund for for every online, catalog and retail purchase made between April 1 and April 22. Rockler said this year's pledge is double what it achieved last year.

The Hardwood Forestry Fund is a non-profit organization that plants and manages commercially valuable hardwoods including black cherry, walnut, red oak, hard maple, hickory and ash. The Hardwood Forestry Fund also creates a management plan, harvest and regeneration schedule for all of the trees it plants.

"As the benefactors of harvested trees, our partnership to plant trees helps woodworkers understand the importance of supporting organizations like the Hardwood Forestry Fund," said Scott Ekman, vice president of Rockler.
