ATLANTA, Ga - TAPPI and Trees Atlanta are teaming up to plant 100 trees in recognition of TAPPI’s centennial anniversary and to increase awareness of how the pulp and paper industry sustains well-managed forests. The trees will be planted in March of 2015 in a public park within the Atlanta metropolitan area.
TAPPI is accepting donations to purchase the trees for planting. The cost for a single tree is $100; however, donations of any amount will be accepted. In exchange for donations of $100 or more, sponsorships will include:
- Name recognition in TAPPI’s volunteer e-mail, distributed to over 5,500 people weekly
- Name recognition in TAPPI’s spring 2015 newsletter, distributed to more than 5,000 members
- Recognition as a sponsor on the Trees Atlanta’s website
- Option for street signage identifying the sponsor
- Opportunity to utilize Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center for one daytime company event
Trees Atlanta will manage the project, including site planning and species selection, as well as provide all materials on the planting day. Trees Atlanta also provides a two-year warrantee on each tree, which includes weekly watering, mulching, pruning and weeding maintenance.
Sponsors are invited to attend and participate in planting the trees in March; however, it is not a requirement for donation.
A specific planting day and the name and location of the park will be announced in the coming weeks.
To make a donation, complete the form and mail it to TAPPI or email it to Ben Hopper ([email protected]).
