The Boeing Company is granting The Nature Conservancy in Washington and Oregon $1.5 million for planting trees — $1 million for Washington, $500,000 for Oregon. Funding will be directed to plant trees in the urban areas around Puget Sound, the Portland area and also to help with reforestation efforts in Central Washington to recover from the Jolly Mountain Fire.

“Together with The Nature Conservancy, we are united by nature and guided by science,” says Jenette Ramos, senior vice president of Boeing Supply Chain & Operations and a trustee at The Nature Conservancy in Washington. “Our commitment to community engagement and corporate citizenship is foundational to The Boeing Company. By investing in the work of The Nature Conservancy, we will advance sustainability practices in our community to protect the environment for future generations.”
