undefinedHelping Haiti Plant Trees

Three years after committing to plant 5 million trees in five years, Timberland is proud to share progress of improved environmental, economic and social conditions in the rural region near Gonaives, Haiti.  In partnership with a local non-governmental organization, the Smallholder Farmers Alliance, we support an agroforestry program to train Haitian farmers to improve crop yields – and have planted 2.2 million trees along the way.

In 2010, Timberland teamed up with representatives from the Smallholder Farmers Alliance to create a self-sustaining agroforestry model that would deliver agricultural improvement, environmental restoration and economic growth for participating farmers through the development of eight community tree nurseries and agricultural training centers. This pilot cooperative, which is reliant on private sector, non-profit and community partnership, will plant a million more trees in 2013, 2014 and 2015, for a total of 5 million.

undefinedTransforming Wasteland in China

Our supplier sustainability team shared the following update from Zhu Hai Lian Feng, a knitwear factory located in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. Zhu Hai Lian Feng has been a Timberland partner since 2008.

Two years ago, factory management decided to create an eco-garden in the barren land surrounding the factory.  After 6 months of hard work, their vision was realized, and a beautiful, relaxing and bountiful garden was completed.

The Zhu Hai Lian Feng eco-garden is home to many fruits and vegetables, including papaw, dragon fruit, leechee, mangoes, tomatoes and lettuce.  The garden is harvested by factory employees, and the fruits and vegetables go directly to the factory’s canteen.  There’s nothing better than fresh fruits and vegetables grown on site!

    I worked at Timberland full-time (more than 3 years)


    Unique heritage, compassionate culture, quality focus. Timberland has a very talented staff that and is deeply rooted in the community.


    Now a subsidiary of a holding company. Sale of the company has resulted in loss of north star. Business outlook is good but company is now focused on mass market.
