Massena, New York 2005

The Massena facility distributed 1,000 white birch and 2,000 black walnut trees in 2005. Employees received 2,600 of the trees for planting in a place of significance to them, their families, and their friends. Volunteers planted another 200 in the nearby village of Norwood in remembrance of Joe Marino, the recently deceased former mayor. Junior Girl Scouts working on earning their Bronze awards and Eco-Action badges planted the remaining 200 trees to enhance the Massena community.

The selected tree species were suggested by employees. The walnut trees provide food for wildlife, especially deer, and were distributed in pairs to ensure pollination. The birch trees were selected because they are fast-growing.
