American Tower, a leading independent owner, operator and developer of wireless and broadcast communications real estate, has committed to plant 1 million trees between 2018 and 2028 in partnership with American Forests.
“We want to be leaders across everything we do, and that includes being good corporate citizens,” says Jim Blestowe, senior vice president, information technology and process excellence for American Tower. “We are proud to be taking steps to make a positive impact on our environment.”
The company has already planted 400,000 trees in the southern Piedmont plains, Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, the northern Rockies, California and northern Michigan. American Tower is also committed to giving back in their own communities. In 2018, a team of employees joined American Forests, Speak for the Trees Boston and the Food Forest Coalition to plant fruit and nut trees at Mass Audubon’s Boston Nature Center to provide cleaner air and reduce the threat of flooding.
