CSX, City Year, ACTrees and Tree Pittsburgh plant 100 trees in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as part of Trees for Tracks program


PITTSBURGH, PA , Saturday, September 28, 2013—CSX, City Year, ACTrees and Tree Pittsburgh brought together48 volunteers from 8:00 am-12:30 pm to plant 100 trees in the Washington Boulevard section of Highland Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. These efforts were 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.

Among the towering trees of Highland Park along Washington Boulevard, Pittsburghers can see the beginnings of 100 newly planted trees. Through the joint efforts of CSX employees, suppliers and vendors, as well as City Year, Tree Pittsburgh, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, the University of Pittsburgh and local volunteers, trees such as redwoods, buckeyes, oaks, red buds, elms and London planes will add shade, capture storm water and make the area even more beautiful.

Danielle Crumrine, executive director of Tree Pittsburgh, said these particular species were selected because they will thrive in the floodplain. “The older, bigger trees are starting to decline,” she said. “There was room to replace the ones we’ve lost and this will help the state reach its goal of planting 20,000 trees for our TreeVitalize campaign.” TreeVitalize is a public-private partnership developed to respond to the alarming trend of the loss of trees in Pennsylvania’s metropolitan areas.

Crumrine said this particular area of Highland Park draws elite cyclists and beginners who ride, race and train on the half-mile Bud Harris Cycling Track. The park was named as such in 2010 by city officials in memory of lifelong Pittsburgher Forrest “Bud” Harris. Harris was a cycling advocate and driving force behind the track’s construction 11 years ago.

“This park is well used, from walkers to bikers to those learning to bike or skate,” Crumrine said. “Trees improve the communities’ overall aesthetic, provide clean air and shade, increase property value and control storm water. I look forward to seeing our work blossom.”

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., 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

City Year is an education-focused, nonprofit organization, founded in 1988, that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. In 23 communities across the United States and through two international affiliates, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time ser vice in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs.

CSX is proud to sponsor organizations like City Year 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. CSX is also a proud sponsor of the City Year Kids Play Safe Program. 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.
