Sussman Shank's Sustainability Committee and volunteers participated in the Friends of Trees event held on Saturday, March 18th.  Our team successfully planted nine happy trees around the North Portland area.

Friends of Trees is an organization that empowers people to improve the natural world around them through planting trees together.  They are a nationally recognized, regional leader in improving the urban tree canopy and restoring sensitive natural areas – through programs delivered by thousands of volunteers.  Since 1989, they have planted more than 600,000 trees and native plants. It was a great way to get outside, learn how to plant trees, meet people, and contribute to help provide some greenery to an underserved neighborhood.
