For every bundle of firewood sold, we plant a tree!
We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Second Fire Project to help conservation efforts and reduce our carbon footprint.

Tony Martinez and Tim Valli have a passion for the outdoors, earning their Eagle Scout awards at age 14, and having a sense of stewardship that led them to create a non-profit, the Second Fire Project (SFP).
In their years as former members of the Scouts BSA, Tim and Tony were once adherent to the official Outdoor Code:
As an American, I will do my best to –
Be clean in my outdoor manners.
Be careful with fire.
Be considerate in the outdoors.
Be conservation minded.
However, after years of camping, they realized there was a flaw in the code: ‘be conservation minded’. In the Scouts, there wasn’t any gesture or action required to offset the carbon consumed for each and every campfire whether it be for warmth, cooking, or entertainment. That’s when Tim and Tony devised a solution, a turn of phrase to close the carbon cycle for any active campsite. A ’second fire’ represents the future carbon needed to replace whatever is consumed in a campfire. Hence, creating a second fire is simply planting a tree.
SFP partnered with One Tree Planted, a forestry non-profit that plants saplings in global regions for every $1 donation received. In turn, SFP funds the planting of diverse trees in carbon sink locations or in lands recovering from deforestation in various regions.
In October 2021, Normandy Campgrounds became the first official location to implement the Second Fire Project. Today, every time a camper purchases a bundle of firewood, SFP funds the planting of one new tree. This ensures a more responsible camping experience and a united sense of stewardship for each and every camper.
SFP envisions collaborating and partnering with United States public and other private camping interests who share a passion for healthy ecosystems accomplished through tree planting worldwide. With Normandy campgrounds at the forefront and a commitment for strategic growth, this young non-profit intends to leave behind a better camping experience than what came before.
