Carter Gives Back with Trees Atlanta

By Jonathon Barge, vice president at Carter

Recently, a group of Carter associates joined Trees Atlanta in its efforts to help protect and improve Atlanta’s urban forest by planting 18 trees along Central Park Place in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.

Carter’s Green Team organized the volunteer day in which Carter associates dug holes and planted 17 black gum trees and one river cypress tree with the help and guidance of Trees Atlanta. This was Carter’s second volunteer day with Trees Atlanta this year and we are proud to have so many dedicated volunteers.

Trees Atlanta was founded in 1985 by Central Atlanta Progress, the Junior League of Atlanta and the Atlanta Parks Commissioner, with a mission of not only planting trees, but also educating and conserving.

Jonathon Barge is a vice president in the Program Development Services group with a focus on corporate and mission critical development. He also leads Carter’s Green Team and sustainable programs.
