Pintail Capital Partners teamed up with Brasfield & Gorrie to plant 70 trees in Greenville’s Del Norte neighborhood on behalf of Trees Upstate. It was a great way to network with others while working to improve our community. These 70 large-canopy trees will not only beautify the neighborhood but also provide lots of important environmental benefits – in the next 25 years, these trees will:
· Remove 770,000 miles of car emissions from the atmosphere per year at maturity
· Filter 1,463,582 gallons of stormwater in the next 25 years
· Store 137,193 pounds of carbon in the next 25 years
TreesUpstate, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to plant, promote, and protect trees in and around Greenville County, has planted 7,399 trees (as of the culmination of this planting). This is vital work as the population in Upstate SC grows in the years to come.
