New Trees for Natural Disaster Sites

As part of the Community Tree Recovery Program, Canon will be planting one tree for every imageRUNNER ADVANCE system sold from now until Dec. 31, 2014. Trees will be planted in various sites where natural disasters have recently occurred, such as Northern Alabama and Joplin, Missouri.

The Arbor Day Foundation and Canon U.S.A, Inc. have a longstanding partnership to help rebuild communities that have been ravaged by natural disasters through the Community Tree Recovery Program.  The Program first provided trees to the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. Active campaigns for the program include locations in Colorado, Kentucky, New Jersey, Northern Alabama, Texas, and Joplin, Missouri.

“Through its corporate philosophy of Kyosei, Canon strives to make a difference in the community," said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Together with the Arbor Day Foundation, our goal is to help bring up to 50,0001 new trees to these communities that have been significantly affected by these disasters.”

From now until Dec. 31, Canon will be planting one tree for each of its imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction system sold, up to 50,000 trees. For more information, please click here.
