This October, for the second year in a row our PTC colleagues in Switzerland dedicated time to give back to the environment. The team partnered again with Almighty Tree and planted another 100 ‘more resistant’ trees.
Unfortunately, the planting location had been heavily impacted by bark beetle infestations which has a direct link to climate change. The damage is estimated to be larger than 100 football fields. To restore the lost trees, PTC colleagues planted ‘more resistant’ trees species such as Oak, Maple and Tilia that are stronger to withhold various stress factors. The trees will grow slower but hopefully last longer.
A “happy feeling” amongst the participants following the tree planting confirms the benefits not only to the environment but also the benefit to team spirit and personal well-being.
