ST. LOUIS — Four years ago, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation pledged to plant 50 million trees. It is now nearly one-tenth of the way there.
The St. Louis-based foundation plans to plant its 5 millionth tree this year as part of a collaboration among Enterprise, the Arbor Day Foundation and the U.S. Forest Service.
Every year since the program began in 2006, 1 million trees have been planted in national forests in the U.S. and other countries where Enterprise operates.
Enterprise estimates the 50 Million Tree Pledge will cost about $50 million.
