Fortnite Creator is Buying Entire Forests to Prevent Them From Being Chopped Down

Fortnite is one of the biggest games of this decade, and it rose to prominence in a very seemingly organic way. Tim Sweeney, the game’s creator has been at work for decades in fact, developing different, intricate and interactive realms in the digital world for players.





However, now he’s making headlines for something even more interesting. In the 1990’s, he founded his video and 3-D software company Epic Games. He’s been at work longer than you might expect, with Epic Games producing such titles as Gears of War, Unreal Tournament, and one of the most popular games of this decade especially among the younger people, Fortnite.

He became a billionaire, and his transition to becoming a philanthropist does not seem fake for a billionaire, for once. He’s trying to use his resources to protect the beautiful western Carolina Mountains.



For over 10 years now, since 2008 Sweeney has used millions of dollars to support conservation projects in North Carolina, his home state, to preserve and guard its forest. Over the last decade, he’s purchased nearly 40,000 acres of land, which makes him one of the largest private land owners in North Carolina.





He has used his money to donate to a variety of conservation parcel projects, such as an expansion of 1,500 acres to Mount Mitchell State Park.

In order to protect 7,000 acres of the Box Creek Wilderness, Sweeney donated $15 million for a conservation project in November 2016.
