Lancaster, Pennsylvania 2011
Joined by students and other community members, Alcoa employees and retirees from the Lancaster facility planted 1,200 hybrid American chestnut trees at the Lancaster County Conservancy’s House Rock Nature Preserve in April. The planting was part of a national restoration project for American chestnuts, which have been devastated by a fungal disease.
In September, employees and community members planted 20 trees in Lancaster’s city parks as part of the annual United Way Day of Caring. This is the ninth consecutive year for the planting activity, with a total of 180 trees added to the cityscape.
