Beacon Helps Make Greensboro “Greener” One Tree at a Time

Est. Reading Time: 1 minute

The Sales Team at Beacon, along with more than 100 volunteers, helped make Downtown Greensboro a little greener this Arbor Day.  On March 22, 2013, 45 trees were planted to honor the 45th anniversary of Greensboro Beautiful.  A variety of trees were planted including: Chinese Pistache, Crape Myrtle, Holly and Littleleaf Linded.  Not only are we improving the tree canopy for downtown Greensboro, but the trees also help improve the environment. Each tree was tagged to show the positive financial impact it has on the environment over the next 15 years.    In addition, the event helped Greensboro, NC maintain its designation as a Tree City USA   for the 22nd consecutive year.

Greensboro Mayor, Robbie Perkins, delivered the Arbor Day Proclamation during the post tree planting celebration held at Hamburger Square.  A big Thank You goes out to Action Greensboro for including Beacon Technologies in this project. “Beacon is committed to being an active part of the Greensboro community.  We saw this as a great chance to get outdoors and help encourage environmental awareness” said Rick Boccard, Director of Sales at Beacon.
