The initiative will leverage trees as a way to reverse the damage done by climate change and address the urgency of preserving clean air and water, healthy food, and a livable climate, the company explains.

“The ‘Time for Trees’ initiative is an important step in protecting the necessities of life, but we can’t do it alone,” says Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We’re thrilled that partners like Viking Cylinders are committed to coming together to drive change. The Arbor Day Foundation is uniquely positioned [to] support the reforestation efforts in California, Iowa and Nebraska.”

Viking Cylinders says it will fund planting a tree whenever a consumer switches from a steel propane tank to a Viking Cylinder propane tank.

“Every time a consumer switches from a steel tank to a Viking Cylinder, we will plant a tree,” says Sean Ellen, managing director of Hexagon Ragasco North America. “Viking Cylinder fiberglass propane tanks are better for the environment than steel tanks. Our products do not rust and therefore do not require harsh chemicals and paints for routine maintenance. Consumers love our tanks because they are lightweight, easy to transport and have a nice stable base. Plus, since you can see the propane inside, you will not run out unexpectedly in the middle of cooking out.”
