Bucks’ success means 200+ trees for Wisconsin through ATC partnership
An exciting new partnership between American Transmission Co. and the Milwaukee Bucks has already scored 201 trees for Wisconsin communities, with more to come. The program, called Trees for Threes, sponsors the planting of a new tree in Wisconsin for every three-pointer the Bucks make at home this season.
After last night’s game, the Bucks have played 23 regular season home games and scored 201 three-pointers in the process. With 18 home games to go in the regular season, the Bucks on track to surpass the 220 three-pointers the team scored last season.
ATC and the Bucks will identify Wisconsin schools and community partners to participate in the tree plantings. 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.
