Lancaster, Pennsylvania 2003

The initial tree planting by Alcoa's Lancaster facility on September 13, 2003 brought together three groups and celebrated three diverse initiatives, resulting in the beautification of the local community. The partnership consisted of the United Way (Annual Day of Caring), the Council on Drug & Alcohol Abuse (Lancaster Beautification Project), and Alcoa (Ten Million Trees program).

During the event, Alcoa volunteers planted 20 shade trees—red and sugar maples, ash, and buttonwood—along Lancaster's Chesapeake Street.
