CHERRY HILL, N.J., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank ®, announced two significant environmental initiatives focused on forest conservation, urban forestry, and community development as part of the bank's TD Forests program.

TD Bank has pledged a multi-year commitment of $1.5 million to the New York Restoration Project (NYRP) to support MillionTreesNYC, a citywide tree planting program that is a key component of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's sustainability initiative, PlanNYC 2030. TD Bank's commitment will enable the program to achieve its goal of planting and caring for one million trees across the five boroughs of New York by 2015 – two years earlier than projected.

"At TD Bank, we are passionate and committed to the environment, and we consider it in everything we do. Our support of MillionTreesNYC is the perfect way for us to continue to support this goal," said Diana Glassman. "As an environmental leader, we integrate the environment into each layer of business, and continue to find new opportunities where we can make sustainable impact."

"TD Bank's commitment to environmental stewardship gives MillionTreesNYC a major boost as we approach the finish line," said Amy Freitag, Executive Director of NYRP. "TD's passion for the environment and long commitment to tree planting makes them an ideal partner to help us achieve our ambitious goal of planting 1 million trees two years ahead of schedule. TD is helping us make New York a stronger, more environmentally resilient city."

Additionally, TD Bank, in conjunction with NYRP and Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees), will launch its third annual TD Tree Days this month beginning in New York and continuing throughout the bank's footprint. The events will see more than 1,000 TD employees plant more than 1,600 trees in 18 locations from Maine to Florida. This number has more than doubled from the nearly 500 trees planted last year. As the Bank's flagship volunteer program, TD Tree Days is another example of TD's commitment to the environment.

"On behalf of Parks, I'd like to thank TD Bank for their generous support and all the TD volunteers who will come out to help in greening NYC this fall," said NYC Parks Commissioner Veronica M. White. "And many thanks to NYRP for its continued partnership and dedication to planting trees and beautifying open spaces citywide."

As a component of TD Forests, the bank's initiative to reduce paper use and preserve and protect critical forest habitats, TD Tree Days works to grow urban forests in local communities.
