CSX ‘Trees For Tracks’ Comes To Nuccio Parkway In Tampa For Second Time In Under A Year

CSX Corporation (NYSE:CSX):

 

What:

CSX and City Year will join the Alliance for Community Trees, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and the City of Tampa Parks & Recreation in bringing together over 50 volunteers to plant 125 large Red Cedar, Olive, Cassia, Purple Leaf Plum and Chickasaw Plum trees as part of the railway’s “Trees for Tracks” program. For more information on these projects, go to http://www.beyondourrails.org/calendar.

 

Who:

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation’s leading transportation companies, connecting customers to ports, distribution centers and markets across the eastern United States. Through grass-roots volunteerism and focused corporate giving, CSX is committed to supporting the communities where it operates. City Year, a nonprofit AmeriCorps national service organization is dedicated to building democracy through citizen service, civic leadership and social entrepreneurship. Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health and livability of cities by planting and caring for trees. With over 200 member organizations in 44 states and Canada, ACTrees engages volunteers to take action to improve the environment where 93% of people live: in cities, towns, and metropolitan areas. Together, ACTrees member organizations have planted and cared for over 15 million trees with help from over 5 million volunteers.

In September, the railway was added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for its achievements in environmental performance, including reaching ahead of schedule the company’s voluntary goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent and its “Trees for Tracks” program to plant one tree for each of the 21,000 miles of CSX track.
