Green Bay PackersFirst Downs for Trees

One of the Packers' Green Team Initiatives, the First Downs for Trees [PDF] program donates trees to participating Brown County communities and the Oneida Nation based on the number of Packer first downs made during the previous season. Since 2011, over 2760 Packer trees have been planted, providing total lifetime benefits of more than $13 million through stormwater runoff reduction, CO2 reduction, energy savings, air quality improvement and property value increase (see fact sheet [PDF]).

Now in its fourth season, the Green Bay Packers have added two new partners – Green Bay Packaging Inc. and SCA – to their First Downs for Trees team. Other program partners include DNR Urban Forestry and Wisconsin Public Service Corporation. Additional funds for this program have been provided through a U.S. Forest Service Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant.

First Downs for Trees

US Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell, Packer President & CEO Mark Murphy, former DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp and others plant a tree at Lambeau Field. First Downs for Trees reduces the Packer's carbon footprint by planting trees.
