Nebraska City, Neb. (Aug. 13, 2008) – Quest, a technology management firm, is teaming up with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 25,000 trees in the Western United States.
Quest’s decision to plant 25,000 trees with the Arbor Day Foundation is in response to the devastation caused by recent wildfires.
“Quest’s donation of valuable and beautiful trees to help replant America’s forests will offer enormous benefits towards cleaner air, waterways, and the protection of wildlife habitat,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “We are grateful for Quest’s strong commitment to the environment.”
Said Tim Burke, president and CEO of Quest: “We know these trees will have a huge, long-term impact towards reforestation of thousands of charred acres in the Western United States. I am pleased to make this donation on behalf of Quest’s customers and staff and especially compelled to do so after fires so close to us caused lingering smoke for weeks.”
The Arbor Day Foundation will work with the U.S. Forest Service to plant 25,000 trees in areas in the Western United States that are in greatest need of replanting.
