LINCOLN, Neb.- Spring-Green Lawn Care, a three-year Arbor Day Foundation partner, is donating $10,000 to plant 10,000 trees in 2012. With every new customer, Spring-Green will make a donation toward tree planting in a forest damaged by wildfire, insects or disease.
Last year, Spring-Green Lawn Care and the Arbor Day Foundation jointly planted 4,000 trees at Pere Marquette State Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, contributing to the habitat needed to save the Kirkland’s warbler songbird from extinction. Spring-Green also helped plant 8,000 trees in Wisconsin’s Florence County Forest and 3,000 trees near Alabama’s Lake Tuscaloosa.
To date, Spring-Green has planted nearly 20,000 trees. The company will announce the locations of its 2012 tree planting efforts in the coming weeks.
