Day of Service - Creek ReLeaf
Charlotte, NC (Nov. 18, 2017) – Alfred Williams & Company’s Charlotte employees participated in a volunteer tree planting event in conjunction with The Charlotte Public Tree Fund. The Annual Creek ReLeaf Program is a collaborative tree planting event implemented by The Charlotte Public Tree Fund, Mecklenburg County Stormwater Services, CPCC, Central Piedmont Chapter of the Sierra Club, Trees Charlotte and dedicated local volunteers.
A total of 1,500 trees were planted along Briar Creek in Charlotte. Volunteers planted seedlings and installed weed mats, tree tubes and fiberglass stakes to protect each new tree from flooding, weed growth and deer browsing.
Alfred Williams & Company’s Charlotte Market President, Amber Brown notes, “Our team recognizes that this initiative is an investment in the future of Charlotte/Mecklenburg that will improve air and water quality, tree canopies, and wildlife habitats--now and in the future.”
