ATC, Milwaukee Bucks tip off fifth season of Trees for Threes

There’s great news for Wisconsin schools today.

American Transmission Co. and the Milwaukee Bucks have announced our fifth 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 2020-2021 season, an eligible Wisconsin school can earn a tree. That 3-point score tracker starts its uptick on Friday, Dec. 25 with the Bucks’ first home game against the Golden State Warriors at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. While there won’t be any fans in attendance, we hope you’ll join us in cheering on the Bucks from the safety of your own home.

“Our partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Trees for Threes program is a win for local schools and the environment,” said ATC Corporate Communications Manager Luella Dooley-Menet. “ATC supports initiatives that have a positive impact on the environment, education and health and well-being. Planting trees at schools aligns well with these initiatives, and we’re proud to continue our relationship with the Bucks for the fifth consecutive season to help accomplish this.”

Last year ATC donated 510 trees to 125 schools across Wisconsin thanks to the Bucks making the most home game 3-point shots of any team in the Eastern Conference and the third-most in the NBA overall. All 125 schools received a video message from Bango, the Bucks’ mascot, and an infographic to share with their students. Throughout the course of this partnership, ATC has donated more than 1,750 trees to make Wisconsin communities and schools a greener place.

Anticipating another big (albeit 10 game briefer) season, we think all those trees (and 3’s) are truly something to cheer about.
