TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® is celebrating the fourth annual “TD Tree Days”. More than 1,000 volunteers will plant 1,100 trees in 21 locations from Maine to Florida. The plantings, which are supported by Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees) and New York Restoration Project (NYRP), are taking place throughout the month of October.
As TD’s flagship urban greening program, “TD Tree Days” provides customers, community partners and employees the opportunity to give back and help green the communities in which they live and work in a fun, easy and rewarding way. Since first introduced in the U.S., “TD Tree Days” has attracted thousands of TD volunteers to help plant more than 2,100 trees across the footprint.
As TD Economics points out in a recent report on the value of trees, urban forests play a much greater role than just beautifying the scenery. They also contribute health, environmental and recreational benefits, like improving air quality, mitigating the effects of climate change, and providing summer cooling for buildings as well as people. And, if looking at trees through the lens of an economist, they also contribute economic value to cities and homes.
As a component of TD Forests, “TD Tree Days” is part of TD Bank’s commitment making the world a little more green. Having a better, greener community can encourage residents to also try to better themselves by taking the time to walk more, eat healthier and focus on trying to resolve their financial issues. TD Bank is helping to enhance the communities in which we live and work one tree at a time.
Congratulations TD Bank!
