GREEN, OH – On October 14 and 15, the City of Green, a Tree City USA Community since 2018, will partner with Diebold Nixdorf, Telemark Diversified Graphics and the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 62 trees in Boettler Park, 5300 Massillon Road. Some of the trees will be planted by local volunteers and City employees along the newly restored Boettler Park stream to help stabilize the stream banks. Additional trees will be planted to create arboretum-type pockets within the park for educational purposes.
“This is another great project brought to life from our Living Green Task Force. Through their initiative, we were able to team with local businesses in their efforts to give back to the community in an environmentally impactful way,” said Green Mayor Gerard Neugebauer.
“Diebold Nixdorf, along with our supplier Telemark, actively seeks ways to replenish the environment to ensure a sustainable future for all of us. Being able to plant these trees in a local park that many of our Northeast Ohio-based associates enjoy is an added benefit,” said Jeff Reinmann, Global Environmental & Sustainability, Legal and Compliance, Diebold Nixdorf.
“We are proud to encourage and support local efforts to plant trees. Cities and towns around the globe that line their streets and fill their parks with trees are building healthier, happier communities,” said Dan Lambe, president, Arbor Day Foundation.
Trees offer vast benefits for the community at large. Thriving urban forests bolster human health, from encouraging physical activity to reducing respiratory illnesses stemming from air pollution. In the United States, park trees alone remove about 75,000 tons ($500 million) of air pollution each year. And urban trees reduce runoff of sediment, pollutants, and organic matter into streams, improving our water quality. Trees have also been shown to reduce crime, lower stress levels, and develop community pride.
