Trees for Tracks

In 2009, CSX set out to plant one tree for every mile of its track in the United States. At the time that sounded like a lot, but thanks to the generosity and effort of dedicated employees, their families and our partners, we've exceeded our goal and need a new promise to chase as we work to improve the quality of life and the landscapes of the communities we intersect and serve.

 

 

Trees for Tracks In Action

At a recent Trees for Tracks event, CSX teamed up with City Year, Arbor Day, and over 50 volunteers to plant 50 trees at Linden Park in Columbus, Ohio. These trees helped to restore what an Emerald Ash Borer (beetle) infestation had destroyed.

Each year, CSX organizes a number of company-sponsored service events in the communities we serve. With the support of non-profit partners like City Year, Arbor Day and Action for Healthy Kids, along with community partners and volunteers, our goal is to improve the community in each of the four Beyond Our Rails focus areas. Learn about our upcoming events, and feel free to sign up as a volunteer.
