Jiffy Junk to Help Restore Forests of Great Need in Georgia — Planting 5,000 Trees in Georgia
West Babylon, New York — Jiffy Junk, characterized in a recent release as “the nation’s leading sustainable and environmentally friendly junk removal service,” has committed to planting 5,000 trees in the year of 2023 with its newest partner, the Arbor Day Foundation, the company announced.
According to the press release sent to news organizations around the nation, “In central Georgia, reforestation efforts are critical to helping restore the state’s forest canopy. For decades, much of Georgia’s forestland has become fragmented, developed, and converted into other land uses. With a focus on restoring these vital ecosystems, this project will work alongside private landowners to support planting efforts that utilize a diverse blend of native tree species.
“These trees will serve as important habitat to threatened and keystone wildlife species throughout the region, including the red-cockaded woodpecker, indigo snake, and gopher tortoise.”
Jiffy Junk CEO and Managing Partner Adam Butler said, “Fighting climate change is something we are committed to doing in every sense of the word.
“It’s exactly why we started the company in the first place – to provide services that were also environmentally friendly and helpful instead of harmful to the health of the ecosystem and our communities.”
