Ontario, CA – SitelogIQ’s (SIQ) Commercial and Industrial team recently hosted their second annual tree planting event to help restore the San Francisquito Canyon of the Angeles National Forest, in partnership with One Tree Planted and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
“We are grateful that the SitelogIQ team was able to join us in the Angeles Forest planting trees and providing care to the area impacted by the harsh Copper Fire. With all hands-on-deck, we are able to plant more trees in the area, which is the goal for reforestation efforts,” said Alyssa Walker, Mountain Forestry Program Manager with One Tree Planted in partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
Over 20 SIQ employees volunteered to restore the fire-scarred land and spent the day caring for the native chaparral plants, including weed clearing, planting natives, and providing general conservation care. In addition, staff from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation staff, shared the history of the location and fire ecology.
“At SitelogIQ, we are passionate about supporting our clients’ commitments to making rapid ESG impact by creating more efficient and healthier buildings,” said Clark Longhurst, SIQ President, C&I Division. “Through our partnership with One Tree Planted, our team donates 1 tree for every kilowatt (kW) of energy we save through our work. Leading the charge and helping our communities make sustainability strides is at the core of what we do, and we could not be more proud.”
