Arbor Day Tree Planting

Comcast Team UP

[Fort Myers, FL] (May 1, 2024) Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. (KLCB) was honored to partner with Comcast, Keep America Beautiful, and the City of Cape Coral for a tree planting in celebration of Arbor Day.  The event took place in Joe Coviello Park, where volunteers from the Comcast Team UP program, local students, and community members came together to plant 138 trees.  The planting is part of the ongoing reforestation initiatives to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area.

“Planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to positively impact the environment,” said Keep Lee County Beautiful Executive Director, Trish Fancher. “Trees play a crucial role in every community, and we are thankful for the collaboration with the City and their efforts to lead in tree canopy growth.”

“We are thrilled by the turnout to plant trees from our friends at Comcast.  Planting trees means cooler streets, healthier air, and better quality of life for people and nature in Cape Coral. Volunteers give so much and gain a deeper understanding of their neighbors, the needs of their community and the power of what’s possible when we all come together. Thank you!” said Jenny Lawson, President & CEO of Keep America Beautiful.

“Thank you to Comcast’s Team UP program for helping keep Cape Coral beautiful,” said Cape Coral Mayor John Gunter. “Their volunteers helped plant 40 trees at Coviello Park on Arbor Day and 138 more on Saturday, along with dedicated trail cleanup and maintenance. Their partnership ensures our city’s natural beauty thrives for future generations.”
