ATC, Milwaukee Bucks commit 510 more trees to Wisconsin schools
The Milwaukee Bucks may no longer be in the playoffs, but we’re proud of the amazing 2019-20 regular season that got them there – a season unexpectedly interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Including the Bucks’ 31 games at Fiserv Forum and four “home” seeding games, the team scored 510 3-pointers at home during the regular season. This was the most 3-point shots made at home by any team in the Eastern Conference and the third-most in the NBA overall.
Our Trees for Threes partnership with the Bucks is important to us because it is a reflection of our commitment to the environment. For every 3-point shot the Bucks make at home during the regular season, another tree gets planted by a Wisconsin school. This year, ATC will donate a total of 510 trees to the 125 schools who registered for the 2019-20 Trees for Threes program.
After the Bucks made a franchise-record 573 threes at home during the 2018-19 regular season, 1,083 trees have now been donated to Wisconsin schools over the past two seasons alone. Throughout the four seasons of the program, a total of 1,781 trees have been donated to make the state of Wisconsin a little greener.
Check out this recap video from this season’s “Trees for Threes” program on Bucks.com. All 125 schools received a video message from Bango, the Bucks’ mascot, and an infographic to share with their students.
