We have always considered the planet in the production of our products. From the start, we committed to donating a portion of every sale to environmental conservation. Our efforts involve the protection and restoration of forests, putting roots in the ground. We focus on the Koa forests of Hawaii as the best way to give back to the people and places at the roots of surf, skate, snow experience. Today, Arbor is the only brand in action sports restoring forests, rather than just planting trees.


Working alongside the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative we have helped to plant over 500,000 trees.


Learn about our Sustainably Sourced Woods and our 100% Solar Energy Manufacturing.

We made a promise when launched the brand to lead with environmentally friendly construction and giving back to the planet. Today, we celebrate the fact that every Arbor Snowboard is manufactured with 100% solar energy, that 80% of our materials and processes are sustainable while research continues to bring the remianing 20% in line, and that we have expanded our use of sustainable woods by use of our Real Wood Powerply .

Our Returning Roots giveback effort has helped to plant over 500,000 trees in forests being restored and protected in Hawaii. Please consider planting a tree via the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Intiative, helping to rebuild the forest and restore the natural ecology.
