ATC, Bucks team up with ‘Trees for Threes’
American Transmission Co. has teamed up with the Milwaukee Bucks this basketball season for an exciting new partnership to help green up local communities. Through a new program called Trees for Threes, the Bucks and ATC will sponsor the planting of a new tree in Wisconsin for every 3-pointer the Bucks make at home this season.
This unique initiative pairs the Bucks’ success with a greener environment but ultimately, it will be Wisconsin communities that score. The Bucks and ATC will identify Wisconsin schools and community partners to participate in tree plantings following the season, and Bucks and ATC representatives will join students in the planting events. The Trees for Threes initiative aligns with ATC’s Grow Smart program, which helps property owners and communities identify low-growing, compatible vegetation that can be planted the smart way – a safe distance from transmission line rights-of-way.
Last season the Bucks hit 220 3-pointers at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, and the team is on pace to far surpass that mark this year. Stay tuned for information on how your local school can apply to be a part of Trees for Threes.
