Green is Universal’s free “One Small Act” social gaming platform celebrates little changes that have a big impact on the environment.
So now and every year at this time if you dress a tree and share it: a tree gets planted.
Let me explain.
NBC and the The Share a Tree program help the Arbor Day Foundation every year plant trees across the United States. These trees are planted in our national forests, state forests and state parks. Two parks as examples are in Michigan’s Mackinaw and Au Sable State Forests.
So Jack Pine Trees will be planted improving the habitat of the endangered Kirtland’s warbler. The warbler is a neotropical, migratory songbird breeding habitat almost exclusively confined to young, dense Jack pines.
Today, Kirtland’s warblers are only located in ten counties on Michigan’s northern, lower peninsula and four counties in the upper peninsula. The work done by the Arbor Day Foundation’s replanting partners increased the number of singing males from less than 200 to more than 1,900. This work has brought back the bird from bringing the brink of extinction.
