Buy a Book, Plant a Tree in Honor of Arbor Day

Local Author and  Publisher Team to Plant Trees this Arbor Day

This Arbor Day Michael Lister and Pulpwood Press are teaming up to support  a better, greener future for us all. Arbor Day is Friday, April 24, 2012.

If you purchase one of their books, they will plant a tree—or if you plant a tree, they will give you one of their books.

“Our slogan is ‘You buy a book. We plant a tree,’” Jeff Moore, the publisher said, “so you can imagine Arbor Day is very important to us, and we’re very proud to be partnering with Michael for such a special project. This really is a perfect fit for both of us.”

“This is something I’m very excited about,” Lister said. “Something I think can really make a difference. This program fits so well with my Mother Earth projects and the timing couldn’t be better.”

Lister founded the Mother Earth Fund in 2009 with the release of his novel “Double Exposure,” a novel he calls his love letter to the environment of north Florida. The Mother Earth Fund works in areas related to north Florida environmental conservation, celebration, and education.

“Michael is passionate about caring for the environment,” Moore added. “It comes across in his books so clearly. And he feels most responsible over north Florida. As do we here at Pulpwood Press.”

Located in the panhandle, Pulpwood Press publishes mostly Florida-based fiction, including several books by Lister, and the house is continually searching for ways to put their environmental and charitable sensibilities into action. Pulpwood’s latest release is Lister’s “Burnt Offerings,” a thriller the Florida Book Review calls “vintage Michael Lister . . . poetic prose, exquisitely set scenes, characters who are damaged and faulty. Not since Thomas Harris wrote about a guy named Hannibal have I enjoyed a villain so much. It’s the best of the Lister novels I’ve read.”

“Having just celebrated Earth Day, now is the perfect time to be a part of planting tree in honor of Arbor Day,” Lister added. “There’s so much we all need to do to care for our sacred mother, and planting trees is good start.”

To have Pulpwood Press plant a tree on your behalf, all you have to do is purchase Michael Lister’s “Burnt Offerings,” “The Big Goodbye,” or “The Meaning of Life in Movies” and then email the publisher at   You can also notify them at the same address that you planted a tree and they will email you an eBook.
