This fall, TD Bank celebrated its fifth annual TD Tree Days by planting more than 1,300 trees over the course of 26 events, making this year’s TD Tree Days the best yet.
As TD’s flagship urban greening program, TD Tree Days provides TD employees, customers and community partners the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in environmental stewardship in their local communities. Over the past five years, thousands of volunteers have planted over 185,000 trees.
TD Tree Days is not only a great volunteer event, it provides a visible impact to the communities that participate.
Following a local event in Rhode Island, a volunteer said, “The street trees we planted together on our TD Tree Days event have already made a palpable improvement. As I have walked around the neighborhood to take in what we accomplished, homeowners have expressed their gratitude to everyone who made TD Tree Days in Elmwood a great success. These trees have the power to improve neighborhood morale and have already begun to do so.”
TD Tree Days is just a small part of the TD Forest initiative. Launched in 2012, TD Forests is founded on two pillars: reduce and grow. It is the first program of its kind at TD, where the Bank has embedded environmental practices into all aspects of its business. TD Green Streets, another program under TD Forests, provides ten grants of $20,000 in support of local forestry projects in low- to moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods.
Congratulations TD Bank!
