The tree planting ceremony marks the end of a six-month “green” initiative in which First National Bank, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, pledged to make a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for each customer who signed up to receive electronic statements.
In total, more than 11,000 new customers signed up for electronic statements, resulting in a donation to the Foundation to plant in forests in need as designated by the Foundation.
