Green spaces in urban communities help improve individual wellbeing and strengthen communities.
In 2015, Timberland made a commitment to create or restore green space in urban areas. This year took our urban greening to New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles. More than 260 people volunteered and planted 37 trees, 800 shrubs, and 400 seeds to transform underutilized space into 15,000 square feet of community green space.

With support from Journey's and the Student Conservation Association, Timberland takes greening commitment to LA, NYC and Chicago
It’s been 3 years since we launched our five-year Urban Greening commitment. Throughout the years, we’ve learned many valuable lessons, like how to plant a tree without getting your Timbs dirty (just kidding, they always get dirty), how to move two thousand bricks via human chain and most importantly, that we have the potential to do more. So, this year, we set out to green not just one city, but three.
While community service is a core part of Timberland’s DNA, and employees around the globe volunteer at many events each year, we don’t always have the chance to return to the partners we serve and see the lasting impact of our work. I recently was able to revisit the Philadelphia Rail Park, which was the focus of Timberland’s 2017 urban greening effort and the site of a large-scale volunteer event to bring the park to life.

For Timberland, the outdoors encompass backcountry trails as well as well-worn paths in city parks, community gardens and other urban green spaces where employees and consumers live, work, and explore. Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050.
