Bucks and ATC to donate 549 trees for 5th annual Trees for Threes program

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks announced Thursday, Sept. 2, that in partnership with American Transmission Co. (ATC), the team will donate 549 trees across 191 schools throughout Wisconsin for the 5th annual Trees for Threes program.

The total number of donated trees, 549, comes from the total of made 3-pointers by the Bucks at home during the 2020-21 regular season.

The Trees for Three program pledged that every 3-pointer made by the Bucks during the 2020-21 regular season at Fiserv Forum, resulted in the ATC donating one tree to Wisconsin schools.

The Bucks 549 3-pointers was an Eastern Conference-best during Milwaukee's 2021 Championship season.

“Our partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Trees for Threes program is a win for local schools and the environment,” said Gregory Levesque, ATC’s Director of Corporate Communications, Policy and Strategy. “ATC supports initiatives that have a positive impact on the environment, education and health, and well-being. Planting trees at schools aligns well with these initiatives and can be a valuable lesson for students.”

The 549 trees were donated to 191 schools in 51 counties across the state.

In five seasons of the Trees for Threes program, the Bucks and ATC have teamed up to donate 2,330 trees across Wisconsin.

The Bucks say all 191 schools received a video message from Bango, the Bucks’ mascot, and an infographic and activity sheets to share with their students.
