New Holland Construction will donate its equipment to help dig, load and move mulch, lime and other materials for the Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET) 16th annual Renewal & Remembrance landscaping event July 9 at Arlington National Cemetary in Arlington, Virginia.
New Holland, a platinum sponsor of the event, will aid in enhancing this military cemetary and national landmark.
In 2008, New Holland Construction donated the use of a backhoe loader and two skid steer loaders to the Renewal & Remembrance event to help remove plants and trees from a 700-square-foot planter bed, dispose of discarded plants, bring in fresh soil and prepare areas of Arlington National Cemetery for replanting.
Each year, the Renewal & Remembrance event draws hundreds of volunteers to Arlington National Cemetery to spend the day mulching, cabling and installing lightning protection for trees, and pruning, planting, liming and aerating the more than 200 acres of land that make up these sacred national grounds.
With nearly 3,500 member companies and affiliates, PLANET represents more than 100,000 green industry professionals across America. For more information, please visit landcarenetwork.org. To learn more about PLANET’s annual Renewal & Remembrance event, please visit landcarenetwork.org/renewal.
