Tree Planting Initiative
In January 2019 Custom Coach partnered with the National Forest Foundation and made a commitment to plant a tree for every 75 miles our coaches travel. Throughout the course of a year this will result in over 10,000 trees planted across the United States in areas of need. The more you see our buses out on the road the more trees we’re planting, over 6,112 planted and adding more every day.
As our climate continues to change businesses need to be proactive in protecting our environment and lead by example. While bus transportation is one of the more efficient modes of travel, buses still burn diesel which produces Carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and one of the largest contributors to global warming. Planting a tree every 75 miles our buses travel will offset 125% of the CO2 created from the diesel powering them. The trees planted every year through this program will remove over 3 million pounds of CO2 from our atmosphere.

The National Forest Foundation
Carbon capture is just one of many benefits trees provide to supporting and improving our environment. The National Forest Foundation has set a goal to plant 50 million trees across our National Forests by 2023. To learn more about the benefits of tree planting visit www.nationalforests.org
