A Winter's Tale - Alsco Plants Trees
Part One: 2019 Planting Round Up
This winter, teams from Alsco branches around the country have been grabbing gumboots and spades and heading out on wintery weekend mornings to plant trees along their local rivers and streams.
Team planting days are part of Alsco’s ongoing commitment to waterway restoration through a partnership with environmental initiative, Million Metres. As Million Metres’ Foundation Partner, Alsco is contributing to the goal of restoring a million metres of New Zealand’s waterways. Alsco provides corporate sponsorship, donations to stream projects, and staff engagement in planting days.
This year Alsco have taken their tree planting contribution to the next level by co-hosting a series of public planting days with Million Metres. Alongside a great turn out of Alsco staff and families, the planting days have provided an opportunity for other businesses and members of the public to get involved. Volunteers have enjoyed spending time out in nature, giving back to their environment, and finishing the day with a shared barbeque lunch provided by Alsco.
