Monster Tree Service Celebrates Arbor Day and Earth Day
Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest growing tree service franchise, is committed to healthy trees and happy customers; that’s why we place tremendous value on community involvement. April is full of green opportunities for Monster Tree franchisees to get give back. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22, with events held across the globe to support environmental protection. April 27 is Arbor Day, a holiday that encourages communities to come together and plant trees. In honor of these holidays, Monster Tree Service franchisees are doing their part to keep the earth healthy.
Monster Tree Franchisee, Mark Fletcher Gives Back
This April, Mark Fletcher, a Monster Tree Service franchisee located in central Ohio, has taken the initiative. Fletcher bought tree saplings from the Arbor Day Foundation, a nonprofit conservation and education organization, to donate to local schools. Along with some coloring books, Fletcher took saplings, plant soil, tree fact pages, instructions and CowPots, which are biodegradable, natural pots that allow for unrestricted root growth, to three local schools.
“It felt great to give back to my community,” says Fletcher. “As a Monster Tree Service franchisee, preserving nature and educating the next generation about conservation is very important to me. April seemed like the perfect time to give back, and it’s been so rewarding!”
In total, Fletcher donated 200 coloring books, 50 red maples, 50 Burr Oaks and 50 Northern Red Oak Saplings.
Make Your Community a Better Place
Through philanthropic efforts, like that of Mark Fletcher, businesses can help make their neighborhood a better place. As business owners venture out and connect with locals, relationships will inevitably start to form. Soon enough, your business will become an integral part of the community. In addition, by associating your company name with a good deed, you are building positive brand awareness.
Giving Back is a Win-Win
Giving back to the community can be a mutually beneficial endeavor. The community is served, and your company can benefit as well. According to the Huffington Post, research has shown that 90 percent of consumers would switch to a brand supporting a good cause. If your brand becomes synonymous with good deeds, you may see an uptick in customers.
Charity work can also help boost employee morale. A positive work experience leads to high job satisfaction and ultimately good customer service. If employees take pride in their work, they are more likely to put in the effort to go the extra mile for a customer in need. Employees will also feel more connected to both their work and their neighborhood if their employer regularly engages in community service or charitable endeavors.
Through community contributions, like that of Mark Fletcher, Monster Tree Service demonstrates an understanding of the importance of community involvement. As brand recognition continues to grow, people across the country are turning to Monster Tree Service to help keep their trees maintained or removed safely.
