Lindsay Corporation Partners with Arbor Day Foundation to Plant Trees in California’s Los Padres National Forest
(OMAHA, Neb., USA) – April 2013—Lindsay Corporation, a leading designer and manufacturer of self-propelled center pivot and lateral move irrigation systems, has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to help restore the tree population in the Los Padres National Forest.
The Arbor Day Foundation will be planting 1,200 trees, one for each Lindsay employee, in celebration of Arbor Day and Earth Day. A mix of Ponderosa Pine, Jeffrey Pine and Sugar Pines will be planted in the national forest to help restore what was lost during a massive forest fire.
Los Padres National Forest spans more than 200 miles in south-central California and is home to more than 450 different fish and wildlife species. In September and October of 2006, the Derby Fire burned more than 160,000 acres of land in the national forest. In order to restore the forest’s natural state, the damage must be reversed before more land is lost to invasive fire-prone brush.
“Lindsay Corporation is one of the world’s leading providers of irrigation and water management systems and is committed to protecting and caring for our land, water and the environment for future generations,” says Richard W. Parod, Lindsay Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer. “This is a great opportunity for us to help restore the tree population of Los Padres National Forest and also to honor and recognize our dedicated employees around the world.”
The Arbor Day Foundation’s mission is to inspire people to plant, celebrate and nurture trees. The foundation plants and distributes more than 10 million trees a year, and their efforts have preserved more than 48,000 acres of rainforest land.
Arbor Day is a Nebraska-originated holiday that is celebrated on the last Friday of April, which this year falls on April 26. Learn more at http://arborday.org.
