American Transmission Co., with the Milwaukee Bucks, have announced our seventh consecutive season of partnership for the Trees for Threes program, which is deeply rooted in care for the environment and cause for the community.
Here’s how it works: for every 3-point shot that the Bucks score at home during the 2022-2023 season, an eligible Wisconsin school can earn a tree. With nine of 42 home games under their belt this season, the Bucks have already made 113 3-pointers toward the total.
“Our partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Trees for Threes program is a win for local schools and the environment,” said Gregory Levesque, ATC’s director of corporate communications, policy and strategy. “Trees for Threes is all about connecting students with educational opportunities that help improve the environment. We’re proud to continue our relationship with the Bucks for the seventh consecutive season to plant more trees at Wisconsin schools.”
Last year, ATC donated a record 579 trees to 180 schools across Wisconsin thanks to the Bucks setting a new franchise record for three-pointers made in a season at home. The 579 threes made at Fiserv Forum during the 2021-2022 season were also the most by any team in the Eastern Conference and were the fifth-most by any team in the NBA during the 2021-22 season.
The 579 trees were donated to 180 schools in 42 counties across Wisconsin. All 180 schools received a video message from Bango, the Bucks’ mascot, and an infographic and activity sheets to share with their students. In six seasons of the Trees for Three initiative, the Bucks and ATC have teamed up to donate more than 2,900 trees to help make Wisconsin greener.
School administrators can register for the Trees for Threes program on our website until April 10, 2023.
