Charitable Foundation of the Energy Bar Association Sponsors Community Tree Planing, Southwest Rejoices

CFEBA volunteers celebrate the addition of 17 streets in Capitol Quarter.
Our fall Community Tree Planting (CTP) season continued this past weekend with two tree planting events that added 29 new trees to the District. One planting in particular was especially meaningful – the Capitol Quarter CTP – as Casey Trees partnered with the event’s lead sponsor, the Charitable Foundation of the Energy Bar Association (CFEBA) to plant 17 trees in one of the city’s newest waterfront neighborhoods.  

Established in 1946, the Energy Bar Association (EBA) is a non-profit voluntary association of attorneys, non-attorney professionals and students, whose mission is to promote the professional excellence and ethical integrity of its members in the practice, administration and development of energy laws, regulations and policies. CFEBA is its philanthropic arm that engages in a variety of energy-related and general charitable activities - including tree plantings!

CFEBA's sponsorship didn’t stop with just financial support – they brought in extra sets of hands as well. Almost 20 hard-working and enthusiastic EBA members came out early on their day off and joined Capitol Quarter residents to help plant trees. From all of us at Casey Trees, we’d like to extend a big thanks to our friends at CFEBA for their support in our reforestation efforts. A special thanks goes to Walter Hall, II who serves on CFEBA's Board of Directors and was integral in the sponsorship and recruitment of volunteers.

Partnering with local businesses and organizations to restore the tree canopy of the nation's capital is always a rewarding experience. We love working with local groups and sponsoring a tree planting is the ideal way to show your commitment to bettering the neighborhoods you do or hope to do business in.
