OUR VISION IS TO TAKE CARE OF THE PLACES WE LOVE AND TO STEP UP AS BUSINESSES, AGENCIES, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO DO OUR PART - TOGETHER.
PLANTING TREES IS A CONCRETE WAY WE WILL SHOW THIS COMMITMENT.
Operation Appleseed was inspired by a Nov 2019 lecture with scientist Dr. Bill Ripple and his research on trends in climate change, which moved Roger to do something about our climate crisis. That night he had an idea:
“We’ll call this campaign 'Operation Appleseed.' Instead of apple trees, we’ll plant evergreens and hardwoods. Instead of apples, they’ll bear something far sweeter than fruit – fresh, clean air and carbon storage, along with vital habitat for flora and fauna. We’ll be reforesting with a diverse array of native trees.”
