Earlier this year, as part of our Environmental Day celebrations, Graham set out to plant to 10,000 trees in 2018. On August 22nd, that goal was achieved.
Twelve employees planted over 1,000 seedlings on a property outside of Carstairs, Alberta. These new seedlings will help the landowner reclaim some of his land and create a new habitat.
The initiative was carried out in conjunction with Arbor Day Foundation. The new trees were planted in various locations throughout Canada and the United States.
Some benefits about planting trees:
- Improve air quality
- Ensure water quality
- Slow climate change
- Prevent species loss
