WABE-Trees Atlanta Partnership
WABE is pleased to let you know that for every pledge we receive on April 24, 2014, Trees Atlanta will plant a tree right here in metro Atlanta. This is for new, renewing or additional pledges made on this date only.
This day is made possible with the help of Omix-ADA, celebrating 20 years in the aftermarket Jeep business in Atlanta.
The WABE/Trees Atlanta Day partnership started on Earth Day 2010. Since that time WABE listeners have pledged, and Trees Atlanta has planted, over eight thousand tree seedlings.

Each tree is a year old seedling, selected by Trees Atlanta for their ability to thrive in our area. They’ll be planted right here in and around metro Atlanta.
