About us

Create Forest is an artist collaboration project selling made in USA/Canada treeplanting pins, outdoor patches and rad t-shirts. We are treeplanters, outdoor enthusiasts and rare forest creatures, and so are you. 

Our mission is to make you go play outside and enjoy any surrounding nature and forest in rad style! If you enjoy stepping out of your house, go to the nearest forest wearing Create Forest apparel!

We want to see you become a proud and rare forest creature so we encourage you to tag #createforest apparel on Instagram! Go wild! Thank you so much for taking the time to check us out!

If you have any questions or are interested in a collab, feel free to shoot us an email at hello@createforest.com

Create Forest is run by Mat Caissy, Dave Narayan and with occasional friends or family member:


Mat planted 750,000 trees across British Columbia between 2007-2014. His last season in 2014, he got injured and had to stop planting. Since then, he's spent his time working as a freelance web designer in Vancouver, BC and hanging out at Shopify.

Create Forest was created in the winter of 2017 out of nostalgia and with the desire to reconnect with the treeplanting and outdoor community. Thanks for taking a look and see you in the woods!
