AEI’s founder has a strong commitment to long term care for the land. One of our programs that has been in place since the beginning of our company is tree planting. It started with a simple commitment to plant a tree for every pole set. Our founder soon surpassed this commitment and our plan had to be amended many times from 5-10-20 trees per pole set. Now we just continue planting. Most of the trees were planted by employees or family. 

In March 5th of 2010 our millionth tree was planted. Now the tree planting is used as a way to teach care for the land to our youth. This spring alone an additional 6,000 conifer trees have been planted in a valley that once was forested but over the years was logged, cleared and converted to hay and pasture ground.
