Trees for Life
Each year, Maritime Electric employees volunteer to plant trees at Island schools, Parks and communities as part of Trees for Life. The program began in 2019 with employees from across the company planting more than 300 trees at École La Belle-Cloche and Kinkora Regional High School. It's estimated that these trees will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 6,530 kg/year.
In 2020, the Trees for Life program was adapted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Maritime Electric donated trees to seven Island communities and schools for planting by community members and students.
Trees for Life will be entering its third year. If your school or community wants to apply, please look for the application form in Spring 2021.
Application for 2021 coming soon.
