BB&T Bank Helps Green Baltimore!

On April 15th 2016, 25 volunteers from BB&T Bank planted 20 NEW STREET TREES in the Milton Montford neighborhood in east Baltimore.

 

As volunteers worked hard to dig holes, straighten trees, mulch, and pick up trash, community members joined us to show their appreciation for their new greener streets.

For the second year in a row, BB&T Bank chose the Baltimore Tree Trust for their annual Lighthouse Project. The BB&T Lighthouse Project provides corporate financial support for organizations and volunteers time to assist in carrying out our mission.

 

Thank you BB&T Bank for
HELPING US TRANSFORM BALTIMORE WITH TREES!

Corporate Greening Day with Whitney Bailey Cox Magnani

On April 14th 2016 Whitney Bailey Cox and Magnani (WBCM) provided 12 volunteers to help plant 12 new street trees in the Milton Montford neighborhood in east Baltimore. We began the afternoon with a "lunch & learn" at WBCM's office educating volunteers about the importance of our organization's mission and ended the afternoon greening the streets of Baltimore one tree at a time.

Eager to live on tree lined streets, community members welcomed the trees and shared their support and excitement over the new additions to the neighborhood. Tree varieties include Red Maple, Acer rubrum & Hackberry, Celtis occidentalis.

Thank you to all you helped us
