Apple Purchasing 36,000 Acres of Working Forestland

Apple has joined forces with environmental nonprofit The Conservation Fund to purchase 36,000 acres of private forestland to be sustainably harvested and used in Apple’s packaging. The purchase includes two locations, one in Maine, the other in North Carolina. Other companies will be able to buy fiber from these working forests, which will be harvested with “an eye toward the long-term economic well-being of the forest,” said Daniel Brindis, a senior Forests Campaigner with Greenpeace. The land is part of approximately 45 million acres of private forest in the U.S. and will be managed by The Conservation Fund. President Larry Selzer says, “Apple wanted to work with an organization that had the ability to acquire and manage these forests, and we’re thrilled about this partnership. Apple is doing something unprecedented here.”
