Summer may be winding down, but the temperatures outside are still hotter than ever. In an effort to add more shade trees to our communities, Long Realty Company joined Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild in his campaign, in partnership with Tucson Electric Power, to plant 10,000 trees in local schools, neighborhoods, businesses and homes for 2014. Long Realty offered to donate 1,926 trees in honor of our company’s founding in 1926.
Long Realty offered clients, friends and partners the opportunity to have a free tree delivered to their home or business at no cost. Participants chose among Velvet Mesquites, Blue Palo Verdes, Sweet Acacias and Red Push Pistaches.
Long Realty Trees were distributed through the Trees for Tucson program from October 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. Long Realty’s participation provided nearly 2,000 additional trees to the community. Of the approximately 9,600 trees disseminated under the Mayor's 10,000 Trees Campaign, Long Realty was responsible for nearly 25% of them.
“Helping our local community is part of Long Realty’s Core Values of Integrity, Excellence, Compassion, Leadership and Teamwork”, said Rosey Koberlein, Long Companies CEO. “Planting trees increases the value of our homes, the livability of our neighborhoods, and encourages a sense of pride in our communities. Long Realty is proud to lend support to the Mayor’s campaign and watch Tucson’s trees grow.”
