treelines for firefighters conifers


We're donating our iconic Treeline sunglasses to the courageous firefighters protecting the forests of California and the West.

We are a Proudly California brand. Our heart breaks as we watch megafires sweep across the forests and communities we love. In the face of an accelerating climate crisis, we’re always asking ourselves what more we can do to help.

We want to recognize the wildland firefighters who are working in hard and dangerous conditions to protect the people and the land. We've gotten a lot of emails from firefighters asking for a pro-deal on our Treeline alpine shades... and that's when it clicked: We can do better than just a discount! How about free?

From now until the first rains, we’re giving firefighters in the West a free pair of Treeline sunglasses. As they work to protect our people and planet, the least we can do is ensure they’ve got the gear to do the job better and more comfortably.

“Do you guys offer any pro-deals for firefighters? I really like your sunglasses with the side shields. They would help a lot to keep the smoke out of my eyes.”

Samuel, Wildland Firefighter

A note to Firefighters

We’ve had an overwhelming response to this initiative, and we’ve proudly donated over a thousand pairs of Treelines to Firefighters! Unfortunately, we are totally out of stock of shades we have available to donate, and we need to close the form for now so we can focus on shipping out Treelines to those who have requested them.
We’re working on getting more inventory to support the project. If you’d like to get on the shortlist for when we're back in action, please give us your email below:

Why Treeline?

Our most iconic frame, the Treelines, is set apart by unique perforated sun shields for max glare protection without sacrificing breathability. Turns out, they’re ideal for firefighters in addition to adventurers.


Protective Side Shields

Removable, magnetic, perforated side shields protect your eyes from sun, wind and dust while still allowing for comfort and breathability.


Ultralight Comfort

Designed for strength and comfort without weight or bulk. Perfect for long active days in high alpine terrain.

Common Sense Warning

The Treelinees are FDA certified for basic impact: the lenses can withstand a 5/8” steel ball dropped from 50”. They are not, however, a replacement for ANSI Z87.1 safety goggles. Please use common sense and proper eye protection in situations that require actual safety goggles, like blasting rock or operating heavy machinery.
