MILWAUKEE® Tool Canada Plants 100 Trees at 100th Anniversary Tree Planting Event

May 14, 2024

To commemorate its centennial, Milwaukee Tool Canada held a tree planting event on May 10, in partnership with Tree Canada. The event reiterated the company’s commitment to its sustainability stewardship not only with its manufacturing capabilities but also with the environment.

“I am incredibly proud to commemorate our 100th year by planting 100 trees,” said Craig Baxter, group president of TTI Canada. Our team has demonstrated their resilience and dedication by creating innovative solutions and disrupting the jobsite making Milwaukee Tool the largest power tool company in the industry today. We are thrilled to be planting a tree on behalf of every year we have been in business, and it serves as a reminder of our steadfast commitment to the environment as well as what we can accomplish when we work as one team.”

By planting native, non-invasive species, the heavy-duty tool manufacturer aims to provide essential habitat for wildlife, birds, mammals, and pollinating insects. Once planted, the area will be left to naturalize, reducing the need for harmful mowing practices and mitigating climate change, which will help to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Baxter added, “It’s been an honour to lead a talented team of colleagues and we would like to thank our team of partners, customers and colleagues for their support in helping us achieve 100 years of business. Just look at what we’ve brought to market so far. You can only imagine how many solutions and the type of capabilities we will provide in the future, and we are just getting started.”

The partnership with Tree Canada is part of their ‘Partners in Planting’ program, which offers companies a way to deliver a team-building opportunity and foster good corporate citizenship right where their employees live and work. Tree Canada secures trees, a planting site and all the logistics, allowing company teams to enjoy the event while doing something positive for their community. 

The 100-year anniversary tree planting event took place at Cedar Grove Park in Markham, ON, contributing to the future of the environment and the Markham community in a meaningful and impactful way.
