With a few more tree plantings in sight, we are ahead of schedule on our goal to plant 1,000 trees in Durham this winter! Generous grants provided through the Duke Carbon Offsets Initiative, Delta Airlines, Duke Energy Foundation and many donations, have made this goal possible.
Including our planting in the Northbrook community (pictured) last weekend, to date 455 volunteers have helped plant 913 trees this season! This is what a community-wide effort looks like and we are so grateful for everyone who has helped from experienced tree planters to first-timers. Our volunteers took the time to preserve Durham's tree canopy and guarantee a source of clean air and water for the residents of these areas. If you want to be in on the action there are just a few tree plantings remaining.
