Here a tree, there a tree, everywhere a tree

Posted | September 25, 2019

It’s time again for our annual campaign to promote the planting of trees throughout our service territory. The Plant for the Planet program is modeled after the United Nations Environment Program’s (UNEP) Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign, which encourages individuals, communities and businesses to plant a billion trees around the globe each year.

Plant for the Planet provides up to $75,000 each year in grants to nonprofit organizations and local governments for tree-planting initiatives. Individual grants range from $500 to $5,000. Grant applications will be accepted Friday, November 1, 2019, through Sunday, December 1, 2019. All grant applications must be submitted through our online portal. Visit lge-ku.com/plantfortheplanet for more information.

Grant winners will be announced in the spring of 2020.
