CSX and ACTrees plant 100 trees in Nashville, Tennessee as part of Trees for Tracks program


NASHVILLE, TN, Saturday, October 19th, 2013—CSX and ACTrees brought together 75 volunteers from 8:00 am–12:30 pm to plant 100 trees on Monroe Boulevard between 9th Avenue and 11th Avenue and on Arthur Avenue between Monroe Boulevard and Garfield Street in North Nashville, Tennessee. These efforts were a part of the railroad's system-wide "Trees for Tracks" program, in which one tree is planted for each of the 21,000 miles of CSX track.

Trees Nashville was the local planting partner for the project, while Metro Nashville Public Works, Metro Parks, and the Sheriff's Department were all contributing sponsors.

Volunteers came from CSX, Tennessee State University, and Hands On Nashville. They received gloves and safety vests from Metro Public Works, while Public Works' Tool Bank provided shovels, mattocks, and wheelbarrows. The department also provided mulch and logistical support.

North Nashville was recently identified by Metro Tree Advisory Committee's Tree Canopy Assessment as having one of the lowest tree canopy percentages in the city, making events like CSX's Trees for Tracks critical for the city. MTAC's recent Tree Inventory of the Inner Loop identified appropriate tree sites in the neighborhood.

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Florida, is one of the nation's leading transportation companies, connecting customers to ports, distribution centers and markets across the eastern United States. CSX created Beyond Our Rails as an extension of our organization—displaying our commitment to Safety, Community, the Environment and Wellness through grass-roots volunteerism and focused corporate giving—actively engaging employees and non-profit organizations in programs and initiatives designed to make the world a better place.

In September, the railway was added to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for its achievements in environmental performance, including reaching ahead of schedule the company's voluntary goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent and its "Trees for Tracks" program to plant one tree for each of the 21,000 miles of CSX track.

CSX is proud to sponsor organizations like ACTrees, in their efforts to improve parks, schools, recreational centers and other public places in the many types of rural, suburban and urban communities that CSX connects and serves. ACTrees, or The Alliance for Community Trees, supports the needs of communities, nonprofits, businesses, and others engaged in urban forestry. Working together, they are improving the environment where over 90% of Americans live and work. Local ACTrees member organizations and their partners have planted 15 million trees nationwide with help from over 5 million volunteers.
