Snapping Shoals earns award for tree program

Snapping Shoals EMC in Covington has been selected to receive the Georgia Urban Forest Council's 2012 Outstanding Marketing Grand Award for the co-op's participation in the Tree Line USA program.

The Georgia Urban Forest Council (GUFC) annually rewards individuals, organizations, businesses, municipalities, and counties for outstanding work in protecting and enhancing community forests.

Snapping Shoals EMC was the first EMC in the state to receive the Tree Line USA recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation for its leadership in caring for trees while meeting service objectives.

The Tree Line USA program acknowledges public and private utilities that demonstrate practices that protect and enhance America's urban forests. The goal of the Tree Line USA program is to promote the dual goals of safe, reliable electric service and abundant, healthy trees across utility service areas.
