Casey Trees is going to the ball - EARTH BALL 2009.

Members of the DC FOR OBAMA Advocacy Team on Energy & Environment decided to to take action on President Obama's plan to move green energy forward by organizing the 1st annual Earth Ball. The ball takes place on Friday, June 19 at the Mott House (122 Maryland Avenue NE). Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

The goal of the Earth Ball is to promote and educate the public on the creative and innovative options available to reduce our energy dependency.

How is Casey Trees involved? We are one of 15 organizations invited to participate in the ball's Green Exhibit Gallery. Our gallery submission shares a simple message - the average American generates 20 tons of carbon each year, an amount that can be offset by planting 2 trees each year.

Selecting, planting and caring for trees is not difficult. Casey Trees makes it downright simple and affordable. Here's just a few ways we can help you:
  • Tree Rebate - plant a tree at your home in DC and we will send you a $50.00 rebate
  • Community Tree Planting - identify where ten or more trees can go in your neighborhood and we will provide the tools, technical assistance and trees for FREE
  • Homeowner Design Workshop -design a treescape plan for you yard with our landscape design experts and receive a free shade tree delivered to your home for FREE
  • Commemorative Tree - request we plant a tree to honor a special occasion or person. We do all the dirty work for you.
  • Carbon Offset Calculator - determine how much carbon you or your business is emitting and contribute funds to plant the number of trees necessary to offset that amount
Remember when you add trees you help to offset and sequester carbon and move us one step closer to achieving our 40 percent tree canopy goal.

See you at Earth Ball. Corsages optional. ;)
