The fastest growing "tree" on earth, bamboo is harder and a little stiffer than hard rock maple. The harvesting process doesn't require replanting and crops mature many times over in the span it takes maple trees grow.

As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium skateboards, we use a significant amount of wood in our production. In order to off-set the timber we use to construct our skateboards, our goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than we consume.
To that effect, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees we harvest annually in making our skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organisation that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
