The Atlanta Hawks and Arrow Exterminators present: Threes for Trees
posted in Community Love, Eastside Trail, Volunteer // 04/30/15

The Atlanta Hawks partnered with the Arrow Exterminators to host the “Threes for Trees” program, donating to Trees Atlanta for each three-pointer made by the team at home during the regular season. The Hawks and Arrow Exterminators presented Trees Atlanta with a $10,000 check on April 10, 2015 to support the Arboretum efforts.

Atlanta Hawks guards Shelvin Mack and John Jenkins joined staff members from the Atlanta Hawks, Arrow Exterminators, and Trees Atlanta to plant loblolly pine trees and native understory shrubs along the Eastside Trail near the Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park.

These tree plantings will become part of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, a diverse collection of trees, plantings, and native grasses that will span the entire 22 mile Atlanta BeltLine loop. The Arboretum is made possible through a partnership with local non-profit Trees Atlanta.

The conceptual plan proposes several thousand trees, and will be built over the next twenty years. When completed, the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum will be a large-scale reforestation of the corridor and provide educational opportunities for scientific research.
