Apache Tree Grant Program: Four million and counting

Trees are an invaluable natural resource. They beautify our neighborhoods, provide habitat for wildlife and even help to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. It’s estimated that an individual tree can remove 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year from the atmosphere.

In January 2016, we marked the 10-year anniversary of our popular tree giveaway program by donating our 4 millionth tree – a 16-foot tall live oak – to Memorial Park in Houston, Texas. Through our program, trees have been donated to a wide variety of nonprofit and governmental organizations, including cities, counties, schools, parks, universities, youth associations, wildlife refuges and community groups. In some cases, our employees have volunteered their time to plant the trees.

During the 2015/2016 planting season, we donated more than 250,000 trees in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. For example, the Texas nonprofit Friends of the Wildlife Corridor planted 8,500 Apache-donated saplings in the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge. This donation will help to preserve and expand the unique habitat in the valley, a biologically diverse area home to 17 federally listed threatened, endangered and migratory species such as the ocelot and jaguarondi.

Examples of other Apache-sponsored projects include the planting of more than 600,000 pine tree seedlings to restore and reforest the 3,700-acre Bastrop State Park in Bastrop, Texas, and the planting of 68,000 saplings in 352 acres of Santa Fe National Forest in New Mexico. Both protected areas had been previously decimated by wildfires.

Our tree grant program also supports tree-planting in our corporate headquarters city of Houston, which has lost millions of trees due to drought and hurricane damage. For example, Apache sponsors the popular Tour de Houston Bike Ride and Bayou City Classic Fun Run, which both benefit the nonprofit Houston Parks and Recreation Department and its efforts to reforest the city. And in 2013, Apache began a program called Trees for Tots. Through the program, employees plant young redbud trees in Houston’s Memorial Park to celebrate the birth or adoption of a child to an Apache employee’s family.
