Altree™, an innovative new product, will be used to replace aluminum road signs throughout the United States and Internationally.
Altree™ is made from recycled plastic milk jugs & wood chips, known as “forest slash” that would otherwise burned or left on the
forest floor. Altree™ is the only sustainable way to utilize non-commercial timber, greatly reducing the
number of catastrophic forest fires, and will also reduce the amount of
plastic bound for our landfills.
As a road sign, the Altree™ product is significantly cheaper and safer than aluminum, not to mention that it is a green product and has been designated as a bio-preferred product by the US Federal Government.
In 2010 Altree™ was recognized as the Most Innovative Forest Product in the World.
The executives of Altree™ are working with Albuquerque Economic Development (AED), as well as a host
of vendors and strategic partners with the goal of building the first production factory in Albuquerque. Initial employment will be 14 to 20 full-time jobs and could climb to as high as 80, or more, within three to five years.
The Altree™ executives are committed to creating green manufacturing jobs in New Mexico while protecting our forests, restoring our watershed and reducing the amount of plastic heading to our landfills.
Tony is a native New Mexican from Las Vegas that has invested 12 years into launching Altree; helping Altree win the 2010 award for Most Innovative Forest Product in the World.
