CSX, City Year and ACTrees plant 100 trees in Albany, New York as part of Trees for Tracks program


ALBANY, NY — September 21, 2013 — CSX, City Year and ACTrees brought together 92 volunteers from 8:00am–12:30pm to plant 100 large trees at Hoffman Park in Albany, New York. 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.

The Jefferson Red Maples, Redmond American Lindens, Eastern Redbuds, Thornless Cockspur Hawthorns, Turkish Hazels, Japanese Zelkovas and Common Hackberries are expected to play an integral role in the health of the community, its residents and commuters.

“This means a lot to our city,” said Dominick Calsolaro, Albany Common councilman. “These trees will replace trees we’ve lost as a result of age, invasive species and devastating storms. After today, this will be a greatly improved and more-inviting entranceway to Albany. Not to mention, the trees also will combat runoff, provide shade for spectators, and clean and freshen the air.”

Each day, 60,000 commuters enter Albany on Interstate 787 and Route 9W near Hoffman Park, which is frequented by neighborhood youth and the College of Saint Rose’s Golden Knights’ athletic teams. “What we are doing today is important to the city of Albany,” said Tom Pfieffer, City of Albany forester. “Adding 100 trees is huge. We remove trees daily for various reasons, but we are not always able to replace trees one for one for what we lose and/or remove. Not to mention, we are not meeting planting needs. These trees will have a road-calming effect for this major travel route, serve as a critical buffer to area neighborhoods, make the fields more attractive and provide valuable shade.”

“We travel through many Eastern communities,” said John Gaylord, CSX Albany Division manager. “We want to make these communities safer, healthier and greener, and this is one way to do that.”

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 service in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs.

Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the healthand livability of cities by planting and caring for trees. With over 200 member organizations in 44 states and Canada, ACTrees engages volunteers to take action to improve the environment where 93% of people live: in cities, towns, and metropolitan areas. Together, ACTrees member organizations have planted and cared for over 15 million trees with help from over 5 million volunteers.

CSX is proud to sponsor organizations like City Year and 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. Earlier this month, the railway was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America for the third consecutive year. CSX is among three transportation companies recognized by the index for leadership in sustainable business practices.
