Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program Announces 2023 Recipients

HOUSTON, Oct. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apache Corporation, a subsidiary of APA Corporation (Nasdaq: APA), today announced the donation of more than 206,000 trees to 61 nonprofit partner organizations through the annual Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program. Since 2005, over 5 million trees have been granted to more than 1,000 U.S. nonprofit partners and government agencies across the country.

“Over the last 18 years, the tree grant program’s partnerships and support of conservation projects stand as a testament to the enduring importance of trees for the resilience and growth of our communities,” said John J. Christmann IV, Apache’s chief executive officer and president. “Apache believes in the importance of building and maintaining this legacy. We are committed to continuing our work as responsible stewards of the environment by conserving natural habitats, expanding shared green spaces, and restoring urban forests.”

2023 grant recipients span numerous states and project types. For example, this year recipients include organizations such as Houston Wilderness, Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance of New Mexico, and Keep San Angelo Beautiful.

Houston Wilderness is an alliance of business, environmental and government interests dedicated to protecting diverse ecoregions along the Gulf Coast.

“Having a partner such as Apache Corporation donate trees guarantees an impact in the communities where they are planted and takes on a large portion of the direct costs associated with these plantings,” said Taylor Britt, Houston Wilderness senior director of collaborative grants “The long-term impact of these trees is astounding -- they can remove particulate matter from the air, absorb water, store carbon, reduce urban heating impacts, decrease energy costs and provide shade to buildings. We really appreciate that the Apache Tree Grant Program guarantees the trees are going to be delivered, which provides an incredible benefit to the community.”

Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance works to protect and restore the ecological heritage of the Hermit’s Peak region in New Mexico.

“With the generous donation of trees we’ve been granted through the Apache Tree Grant Program, we will be holding volunteer and educational planting days that will help to revegetate burned areas of Hermit’s Peak, increase native plant biodiversity and help educate our community members on all of the work we have been doing,” said Sandy Miller with Hermit’s Peak Alliance. “We are proud of all the work we’ve been able to accomplish in the past year and are excited to involve our volunteers and students to continue this work. We are very grateful to programs such as the Apache Tree Grant Program that make this work possible.”

In West Texas, Keep San Angelo Beautiful enhances quality of life by maintaining clean, green and beautiful spaces through art, science and education in the San Angelo community.

“Keep San Angelo Beautiful is about meeting relevant community needs, creating relationships through intentional acts of service and engaging in purposeful teamwork,” said Charlotte Anderson, executive director of Keep San Angelo Beautiful. “This gives us the perfect opportunity to come together to foster a love of the environment by enhancing it with the beauty of West Texas trees. This year we will have planted a total of 900 trees since 2020 thanks to Apache Corporation. San Angelo is a remarkable community worth preserving and safeguarding, where humans and nature can co-exist in harmony and champion the sustainability of our environment. Thank you for changing the landscape in West Texas.”
