Beetle Percussion now plants a tree in Colorado for every product you purchase. With each item purchased, one tree seedling will be planted in the beetle affected forests of Colorado to assist with restoration. We have teamed up with our partners at the Colorado State Forestry Service at CSU, and are excited to not only be able to remove harmful materials from the environment, but now also replace them with new life. In the aftermath of destructive wildfires, reforesting burned land helps protect water supplies, restores wildlife habitat and reduces flooding and erosion.
