FAIRSING CERTIFIED AS FAMILY FOREST
In 2013 Fairsing Vineyard became a Certified Family Forest with the American Tree Farm System
Certification includes compliance and meeting standards of ecological and economic sustainable forest management.
When purchased, all but 30 acres of Fairsing’s 170-acre site was a clear-cut forest with nearly 90 acres suitable for vineyard development.
With a commitment to sustainability and preservation, it was decided to return 80 acres of the site to its natural habitat as a forest.
Since 2007, over 18,000 conifers, 3,000 deciduous trees,, and 6,000 shrubs have been planted and nurtured across the estate.
In February of 2021, we expanded upon our commitment and planted a variety of new trees including Japanese maple and incense cedar. With time these saplings will compliment our existing ecosystem infrastructure and enhance our forest understory.
