ABA Seer Announces its program:
The Right Tree for the Right Place at the Right Time
The American Bar Association's Section on Environment, Energy and Resources (SEER) announces its "Right Tree for the Right Place at the Right Time" nationwide public service project. The project calls on ABA members to contribute to the goal of planting one million trees across the United States in the next five years. In addition to the actual planting of trees, SEER also intends, through public outreach and partnering efforts, to raise the nation's awareness of the multiple benefits of trees.
A key proposal of the project is ABA SEER's partnerships with well recognized tree-planting organizations, including The Arbor Day Foundation. Members will be encouraged to get involved in hands-on tree planting activities in their communities in addition to purchasing a tree or trees through the program partners.
Members of SEER intend to engage in numerous publicity and educational outreach efforts throughout the year, including planned tree plantings across the country on Earth Day and Arbor Day. For more information, look soon for a web link to the SEER Right Tree Project page at www.abanet.org/environ.
Founded in 1972, The Arbor Day Foundation's mission is to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. The Foundation provides many ways for members, organizations and corporate partners to plant trees in neighborhoods, communities, and in our nation's forests.
Through the Arbor Day Foundation's current efforts and partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, supporters are able to plant trees through their donations in forests that have been devastated by wildfires, insects or disease.
