Berkshire Hathaway’s Mouser Electronics, Inc. and Analog Devices, Inc., a global semiconductor leader, have pledged to donate funds to One Tree Planted with the goal to plant up to 50,000 trees across the United States.
Starting now, for every Mouser order placed in the U.S. region including at least one line of ADI products, One Tree Planted will plant a tree in reforestation projects across the U.S. with a focus on urban forestation and forest fire recovery.
This North American program is an extension of a successful 2023 charitable initiative underway in Europe where Mouser and ADI have seen over 65,000 orders placed so far, to be equally divided between projects supporting Climate Resilient Restoration in Germany, Essex Forest Initiative in England and Nationwide Community Tree Cover in Ireland. The trees will be planted in Fall during the planting season.
“At Mouser, we are strongly committed to making a positive impact on our communities, and we are excited to expand this charitable program to the United States. Together with ADI, we can contribute to helping restore forests, habitats, wildlife and more,” says Kevin Hess, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Mouser.
One Tree Planted is a non-profit group focused on global reforestation. As an official partner of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, they have planted over 40 million trees in more than 47 countries across the globe since 2014. In 2021, they planted over 23.5 million trees, more than doubling their impact from 2020. They seek to re-establish woodland, improve water and soil quality, as well as create habitats for wildlife in areas that were historically forested.
