Thanks to your support, we WON a Land Rover Defender for Rugged Terrain!
We're thrilled to announce that One Tree Planted WON the Environmental Category of the Land Rover Above & Beyond Service Awards — and it's all thanks to you! We asked and you answered, delivering the votes and shares needed to get us across the finish line!
Reforestation takes all kinds of resources, including vehicles that can maneuver through tough terrain and safely transport our team to remote planting sites. This win saves us the cost of purchasing a vehicle, while also helping us get more trees in the ground!
From Land Rover:
"Defender vehicles have been used for various humanitarian causes around the world for decades and with its recent return to the U.S., we wanted to expand on that legacy with ‘The Defender Above & Beyond Service Awards’ and celebrate organizations that know the value of community and drive to do great things with them. Over this past year, we have been inspired by the endless acts of service from people who embody the Above and Beyond spirit of Land Rover, and we’re excited to reward these individuals with new customized Defender vehicles so they can continue to help those around them."
— Joe Eberhardt, President& CEO, Jaguar Land Rover North America
