Green is Good

At AMES, we love growing things as much as you do. That’s why we’re committed to using sustainable practices in every phase of our business. From monitoring water use to measuring carbon output, we carefully track the environmental impact of our work and continually strive to improve it. Because good corporate stewardship means more green for all of us—more trees, cleaner water, healthier communities and healthier families.

Appalachian Hardwood Verified Sustainable

AMES is proud of its long-standing environmental stewardship, and one example can be seen in our wood handle production. Many of our tools feature Northern Ash or Hickory handles. These handles are produced by our wood mills that are located in a specific region of the Appalachian Mountains distinguished as “verified sustainable” using US Forestry Service data. In that region, forests naturally replenish at a rate of 2.29 trees for every tree harvested, which occurs without manual replanting efforts or chemical applications.
