Warranty Solutions and the Arbor Day Foundation Celebrate the Planting of More Than 1.7 Million Trees


Lakewood, Colo.– Warranty Solutions through its partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation is pleased to announce that together we have planted more than 1.7 million trees in our nations forest. The partnership between the two entities began in 2009 to help improve air quality, water quality, mitigate the effects of climate change, combat deforestation and prevent species loss. To-date, the number of trees planted would offset the emissions of approximately 5,856 cars for one year.

In 2009, Warranty Solutions launched the eco-friendly EcoMind product option, providing additional mechanical breakdown coverage for the parts that help vehicles run more efficiently, burn fuel more cleanly and reduce overall emission output. Throughout the last nine years of Warranty Solutions’ partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, on average, 25 trees were planted for each EcoMind product option purchased.

Agent Partner, Cary Berman, said “Most of our customers are parents and they purchase the EcoMind product option for the benefit of future generations. EcoMind helps to keep the vehicle running clean, and at the same time, we work with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant trees.”

Plantings have occurred in 18 forests nation-wide including: Big Thompson Canyon, CO, Washington Department of Natural Resources NW Region, WA, Washington Klickitat District, WA, Tillamook State Forest, OR, Idaho National Forest, ID, Modoc National Forest, CA, Plumas National Forest, CA, Pike National Forest, CO, Black Forest, CO, Upper Altamaha River Watershed, GA, Bayfield County Forrest, WI, Pere Marquette State Forest, MI, Michigan State Forest, MI, Manchester State Forest, SC, Little River State Forest, AL, Cary State Forest, FL, Bastrop State Park, TX and the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, MS.

“We are grateful for the stewardship of our nation’s forests by Warranty Solutions and the example they set,” said Dan Lambe, President, the Arbor Day Foundation. “Because of their commitment forests and the lives they impact have been changed for the better across our great nation.”

Founded in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with more than one million members, supporters, and valued partners. Their vision is to help others understand and use trees as a solution to many of the global issues we face today, including air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, poverty and hunger.

As one of the world’s largest operating conservation foundations, the Arbor Day Foundation, through its members, partners like Warranty Solutions, and programs, educates and engages stakeholders and communities across the globe to involve themselves in its mission of planting, nurturing and celebrating trees.
