Wisconsin communities score 355 trees through ATC, Bucks partnership

The Bucks welcomed American Transmission Co. to center court during its last regular season game Monday night.

American Transmission Co. is donating 355 trees to Wisconsin communities as part of a partnership called Trees for Threes with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Trees for Threes program sponsors the planting of a new tree in Wisconsin for each three-point shot the Bucks made at the BMO Harris Bradley Center this season. That total was 355 after the Bucks’ last regular season game Monday night.

The team far surpassed its three-point tally from last season, which was 220 three-pointers made at home.

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.
