Fairborn, Ohio Christmas Tree

A community tradition for over 40 years, employees of the Fairborn Cement Plant have moved and placed the annual Christmas tree to downtown Fairborn, Ohio.

Pollinator Habitat

As Fairborn Cement Company’s commitment to environmental stewardship, 30 acres of pollinator habitat were recently planted with native wildflowers at a reclaimed quarry. After planting the wildflowers, an apiary was added to the site.

In partnership with the Pollinator Stewardship Council and the Ohio State Beekeepers Association, the Wildflower site is surveyed annually to document the improvements to the habitat.

Reclaimed Quarry Site

The Fairborn Cement Company takes pride in our conservation efforts and how our quarries are reclaimed. We far exceed the reclamation requirements of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and our sites are Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) Certified.  After reclamation, our quarries improve the local wildlife habitat and have many potential beneficial end uses.
