Local high school students put their green thumbs to work to help make the lakefront even greener on Wednesday, October 19th. Students of Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s MC2 STEM High School were among those joining the Cleveland Cavaliers and PwC as part of their “Trees for Threes” program. With trees donated by The Davey Tree Expert Company, the Cavs and PwC pledged to plant one tree for every three-pointer made by the Cavs over the course of the team’s 41 regular season home games in 2015-16 – resulting in 433 total trees now being planted in Northeast Ohio. Those 433 trees will have a total economic benefit of $1,540,600 over the next 40 years.
The first 60 of those trees were planted on Wednesday atGreat Lakes Science Center, where the MC2 STEM students take classes. Representatives and volunteers from the Cavs, PwC, The Davey Tree Expert Company, Western Reserve Land Conservancy and The Holden Arboretum were on-hand to help plant the new trees outside the Science Center and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
