FirstEnergy has donated 300 trees to Mill Creek MetroParks to celebrate Earth and Arbor days for the second year in a row.
A variety of hardwood trees were planted on Thursday by FirstEnergy employees throughout the MetroParks’ 402-acre farm in Canfield.
On Earth Day in 2021, FirstEnergy had donated 300 trees, which were planted at the MetroParks’ Collier Preserve.
In addition, FirstEnergy plans to donate an additional 400 trees to the Poland Municipal Forest on Friday, April 29 to celebrate Arbor Day. Those trees will be planted by FirstEnergy employee volunteers throughout the day on Friday and Saturday.
This initiative is part of the company’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, promote responsible use of natural resources and further the advancement of sustainable practices.
Since April of 2021, FirstEnergy has donated and planted over 17,000 trees throughout its five-state service territory, and is on track to plant over 14,000 additional trees this spring.
