Philadelphia Insurance Renews Campaign to Plant 80K Trees

June 17, 2016

Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, announced that it is continuing its partnership this year with the Arbor Day Foundation with a goal of planting 80,000 trees for the second year in a row.

PHLY reached its 2015 goal of planting 80,000 trees through the combined efforts of its employees, independent agents and brokers, and policyholders.

In January 2016, 50 PHLY employees traveled to Bastrop, Texas, to complete the 2015 PHLY 80K Trees campaign. The group joined TreeFolks and Texas Parks & Wildlife to plant the final 6,000 trees in Bastrop State Park, a park and community devastated by wildfires.

To achieve the goal of planting 80,000 trees in 2016, PHLY is inviting its independent agents and brokers and policyholders to sign up for paperless statements.

PHLY said it will plant 10 trees for each agent who enrolls in direct deposit of commissions and plant 15 trees on behalf of each customer who enrolls in electronic billing.

“Environmental changes have drastically affected our industry, requiring that we closely look at how to best serve our customer,” said President and CEO Bob O’Leary. “PHLY 80K Trees addresses the imperative need to build healthy forests and ecosystems to provide greater security to communities, including PHLY’s policyholders.”

There are over one million acres in desperate need of replanting due to natural disasters according to the U.S. Forest Service. PHLY said its efforts to support the planting of 80,000 trees will help provide greater security to communities, including PHLY’s policyholders.
