Some of the selections of wood we use for your humidor may come from exotic places like Central America, Africa, Indonesia or India. Often some of these countries don't have the reforestation practices as we do in North America.
We believe that natural products are a gift for us to use and enjoy, but should also be respected and appreciated for what they really are.
Beginning in August, 2011, Vanderburgh Humidors plants a tree for every humidor built through our tree planting partner Trees for Life International. They are an award-winning organization recognized by the United Nations.
We don't want to take advantage of the artwork God offers us to enjoy.
After a humidor is shipped to you, we will arrange a tree planting purchase. We try and plant a similar species of tree in the same part of the world as where the wood used in your humidor.
It's the right thing to do.
