  • Einstein Healthcare Network Partners with Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for Plant-One-Million Tree Planting

    Published: 11/12/2012


    Einstein Healthcare Network is not only a proud sponsor of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Plant-One-Million initiative—which wants to plant one million trees throughout 13 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware in order to restore the “tree canopy cover” (the area of land shaded by trees area of land) in the Greater Philadelphia Region to 30 percent—it’s a willing and active participant.

    Starting Tuesday, November 13, Einstein employees, along with representatives from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be planting trees at 3 Einstein campuses:

    November 13 at 1:00 p.m.--Belmont Behavioral Health (4200 Monument Road Philadelphia PA, 19131)led by Belmont Chief Operating Officer Susan Bernini & Associate Vice President Sharon Bergen

    November 14 at 1:00 p.m.--Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (5501 Old York Road Philadelphia PA, 19141)led by Einstein Healthcare Network President & CEO Barry Freedman

    November 15 at 1:00 p.m.--Einstein Elkins Park (60 Township Line Road Elkins Park PA, 19027)led by Elkins Park Chief Operating Officer Ruth Lefton

    All plantings will feature refreshments and raffle prizes for participating employees, such as tickets to the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show.

    The tree canopy is the upper branches or crowns of mature trees. Measuring the area of land covered by tree canopy is an important yardstick for a healthy environment, since trees improve air and water quality and help reduce erosion, water pollution, and flooding. In recent decades the Greater Philadelphia Region has lost millions of trees to development and the mission of Plant-One-Million is to restore what’s lost.
