Wine & Trees
Banrock Stations' Compelling New Pairing
Banrock Station has a long tradition in Australia of winemaking with the ecosystem top of mind. We are proud to be bringing that same ethos to the US via a commitment to the Arbor Day Foundation. Through this partnership we are planting 50,000 trees in areas damaged either by climate change-related disasters or decades of relentless logging or fire suppression.
Banrock Station is proud to partner with the Arbor Day Foundation to provide new homes for the iconic but threatened species that define U.S. regional biodiversity.
10,000 Shortleaf Pines will be planted in Texas and Louisiana to reestablish habitat for migratory and resident wildlife including the wild turkey, an iconic species symbolizing early America. Another 10,000 Jack and Red Pine will help bring Michigan’s state forests back to their natural state after heavy logging began in the 1800s nearly wiped out the Kirtland’s warbler.
In Northern California, Banrock Station and the Arbor Day Foundation planted 6,000 Douglas and White Firs and Ponderosa Pines to replace the coniferous tree cover destroyed during wildfires. And in Florida, 5,000 Slash, Loblolly and Longleaf Pine have been planted to improve soil and water conservation and improve wildlife habitat after Hurricane Michael.
"As Accolade Wines continues to influence the world by ‘making every drop count,’ the Arbor Day Foundation will do our part to make every new tree count in these forests of great need"
Dan Lambe, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation
