Morgan-Keefe Supports National
& International Reforestation Efforts
Morgan-Keefe has joined forces with two well-established environmental organizations, The Nature Conservancy and American Forests, to plant trees both at home and abroad. The environmentally-minded builder has decided to donate tree plantings as move-in gifts for every client whose custom home it constructs.
“We always try to limit the number of trees we cut down on a lot when we build a custom home,” Morgan explains. “However, we recognize that even environmentally sensitive building has an impact on the environment. Participating in tree planting projects is one important way the housing industry can help restore what so many have torn down,” Morgan adds.
The Nature Conservancy launched its online Plant a Billion Trees campaign in October 2008. To date, more than 1.5 million trees have been planted in the Atlantic Forest, which is one of the world’s largest and most endangered tropical forests.
The goal of reforestation projects is to restore natural habitats and ecosystems, protect endangered plant and animal species, enhance air and water quality, and slow global warming and erosion.
