Feronia Forests has spent years creating new, versatile forms of conservation that sustainably put trees to work to prevent them from being cut down. The result is a family of sustainable, forest-forward products that keep trees healthy and forests standing.
Vertical Water is 100% pure maple water that is sustainably tapped from maple trees in New York State. Feronia Forests helped create Vertical Water out of a desire to show landowners that conserving trees can be attainable, profitable, and beneficial to all. Vertical Water is a leader in the emerging tree water category and is available in over 1,400 stores nationwide. Conservation has never been more delicious.

Feronia Forward is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping the next generation discover a love, appreciation, and understanding of our forests. Employing nature and the forest, we work with schools to educate children about renewable energy, sustainability, and the environment. Using our specially designed curriculum, we invite students and empower teachers to take learning out of the classroom and into the natural wonderland that we have conserved.
In addition to our sustainability and conservation curriculum, Feronia Forward programs aim to address the concern that today’s youth spend too much time in front of a screen instead of experiencing nature, leading to obesity, attention disorders, and depression. This phenomenon, known among child advocacy experts as Nature Deficit Disorder, is particularly true for disadvantaged youth who often lack the means to visit the great outdoors. Our programs help schools get their students outside at the Ramblewild aerial adventure park where they can actively improve their physical confidence while learning team building and leadership skills. Read more about our curriculum.
We feel that we have a responsibility to teach children to value forestland so we can ensure that there will always be a generation of people working to protect our natural resources. Over 85% of all funds donated to Feronia Forward go directly towards programs. Click here to learn more about Feronia Forward.
