Canyon Creek Plants Trees, Donates Food
Monroe, WA Canyon Creek Cabinet Co., in partnership with the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association and The National Arbor Day Foundation, is supporting a goal to plant 50,000 trees to commemorate the KCMA's 50th anniversary in 2005.
The objective of the effort is to plant 50,000 hardwood trees in one of the nation's national forests, said Canyon Creek, headquarted in Monroe, WA. Trees planted in the KCMA anniversary forest will help reforest areas that have been damaged by fire, insects or disease.
