23 Apr 2012 - New Holland to sponsor PLANET’s annual Renewal & Remembrance
New Holland Construction is the Platinum sponsor of the Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET’s) 16th annual Renewal and Remembrance landscaping event scheduled for July 9, 2012 at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
New Holland Construction will donate the use of equipment to help dig, load and move mulch, lime and other materials to enhance the beauty of the military cemetery and national landmark.
According to PLANET, this is the largest green industry day of service in the United States. Each year, the Renewal & Remembrance event draws hundreds of volunteers to Arlington National Cemetery to spend the day mulching, cabling and installing lightning protection for trees, and pruning, planting, liming and aerating the more than 200 acres of land that make up these sacred national grounds.
In 2008, New Holland Construction donated the use of a backhoe loader and two skid steer loaders to the annual Renewal & Remembrance event to help remove plants and trees from a 700-sq ft planter bed, dispose of discarded plants, bring in fresh soil and prepare areas of Arlington National Cemetery for replanting.
With nearly 3,500 member companies and affiliates, PLANET represents more than 100,000 green industry professionals across America. For more information, please visit www.LandcareNetwork.org.
