Real Estate Experts To Plant 5000 Trees

CHAPEL HILL, NORTH CAROLINA – 01-26-2020 ( — Sales to Drive Sustainability in Partnership With American Forests


Real Estate Experts, a residential real estate and property management company, is proud to announce that for each real estate transaction, they will donate $50 to American Forests to aid in reforestation efforts. Each $50 donation will amount to 50 trees planted on behalf of their clients. Real Estate Experts’ clients will get a certificate at closing letting them know that the company is planting trees in their name.


The goal for the company is to plant 5,000 trees in 2020.


Reforestation efforts recover hundreds of thousands of acres of wildlife habitat, safeguard vital watersheds, absorb millions of tons of greenhouse gases and protect some of the most stunning landscapes in America.


In addition to the commitment to plant 5000 trees in 2020, Real Estate Experts is working on developing a neighborhood in Orange County, NC that will be 100% Net Zero Energy, the first of its kind in the State of North Carolina.


Real Estate Experts is committed to doing our part to improve the environment and reduce our carbon footprint,” said Jodi Bakst, Broker Owner of the company.  “The goal for the company is to plant 5,000 trees in 2020. We are confident we can meet this goal and we hope to exceed it.”

Since 1990 alone, they have planted nearly 60 million trees in forest restoration projects in all 50 states.  They have also worked in dozens of cities across America, expanding the tree canopy and improving the quality of life for residents.

“We are thrilled to launch an exciting new partnership with Real Estate Experts”, said Lindsey Putz, Director of Corporate Giving with American Forests.  “Real Estate Experts generous support will help us restore critical ecosystems across some of the country’s most important natural landscapes.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
