In an effort to offset the use of natural resources required in land development and building, Clearview Farm Preserve has made reforestation in North America a part of our business model.  Through the organization One Tree Planted, we’ve committed to planting 100 trees for every new home we build. Our homes are primarily constructed using Douglas-fir lumber sourced from the Pacific Northwest & Canada and One Tree Planted allows us to target both that area and that specific tree in fulfilling our tree planting commitment. We care about the environment and endeavor to be conscious of how we impact the world around us.
