On the heels of NBA Green Week, the Atlanta Hawks are partnering with Trees Atlanta to host the “Threes for Trees” program, presented by Arrow Exterminators for the third consecutive season. As part of the initiative, the organizations will help beautify a hillside on the Atlanta BeltLine, planting loblolly pine trees and native understory shrubs near the Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark.
Atlanta Hawks players John Jenkins, Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schröder along with the front office team members are collaborating with Trees Atlant and Arrow Exterminators for “Threes for Trees” in a program on Monday, April 6 2015 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum, 830 Willoughby Way NE, Atlanta, GA 30312.
The Hawks and Arrow Exterminators have teamed up to make a monetary contribution to Trees Atlanta for each three-pointer made by the club at home during the regular season. On April 10, when the Hawks host the Charlotte Hornets, Trees Atlanta will receive a $10,000 check during an in-game presentation. Founded in 1985, Trees Atlanta is a non-profit citizens’ group that protects and improves Atlanta’s urban forest by planting conserving and educating.
