Southwest Power & Light, a retail electric provider based in Houston, Texas, has announced its continued official corporate sponsorship of the Arbor Day Foundation.

“By planting trees, Southwest Power & Light is an example of a company that understands the importance of making a positive impact on the earth,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “The trees planted by Southwest Power & Light will help restore our nation’s forests so future generations can enjoy these places of magnificent splendor.”

“Southwest Power & Light is proud that our customers have made the Plant-A-Tree electricity plans such a success and to see our support of the Arbor Day Foundation continue to grow,” said Jeff James, vice president of marketing at Southwest Power & Light. “The Plant-A-Tree Plans reflect Southwest Power & Light’s commitment to supporting the environment and the stewardship of resources in the communities that we serve.”
