Harley-Davidson is generally associated with rough biker dudes that don’t care about anything, but their recent project called ‘Renew the Ride‘ really shows a different side of Harley riders and the company itself. They have partnered up with The Nature Conservancy’s ‘Plant a Billion Trees’ campaign and are collecting donations to help fund this great cause, as well as planting trees themselves!
Trees are essential for the environment to thrive. They provide conditions where clean air and water are possible. For bikers, they’re also what make a lot of scenic routes so spectacularly gorgeous and enjoyable. To celebrate 110 years of Harley-Davidson, the company has pledged to fund the planting of 110,000 trees in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
Harley-Davidson wanted to hit a little closer to home directly as well, so they also planted 110 trees in the Menomonee River Valley near the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Harley riders and employees joined together to plant these trees.
Bikers have also planted 1,000 trees in the state of Virginia to improve, renew and preserve the great outdoors. They will continue to make projects happen where Harley bikers plant trees to protect the environment for future generations and make riding through beautiful, scenic routes possible.
