Arbor Day FoundationSanta Fe Springs, Calif—Galleher LLC, the largest flooring distributor on the west coast and third largest in the US, partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 5,000 trees in depleted forests around the world.

As the one of the largest wood flooring distributors in the U.S. who sources wood products from around the world, we understand the responsibility we have to our planet,” said Danny Harrington, VP of product strategy, Galleher.  “Our goal is to have a positive impact by supporting responsible forestry practices that maintain and repair forests for the enjoyment of future generations.”

According to Dan Lambe, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation, Galleher truly values sustainability and understands the company’s shared responsibility to the planet. “We respect and admire companies like Galleher who take a proactive leadership role in understanding its business impact on the environment,” Lambe said. “We welcome their support of our efforts to help us meet our global re-forestation goals.”
