Arbor Day

MAGNESIA plants 101 trees

On April 25th, it’s Arbor Day! This day presents a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to appre­ci­ate the sig­nif­i­cance of trees for our ecosys­tem and to empha­size the need for envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion. Arbor Day reminds us of how cru­cial trees are for our lives. They pro­duce oxy­gen, help com­bat cli­mate change, and pro­vide habi­tats for count­less species. Even in our leisure time, trees are invalu­able, serv­ing as back­drops for relax­ing strolls, thrilling out­door activ­i­ties, and sim­ple fun in nature with the whole family.

This year, MAGNESIA has launched a spe­cial ini­tia­tive to under­score the impor­tance of Arbor Day while also express­ing grat­i­tude to par­tic­i­pants of our 2023 annu­al cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion sur­vey. As a thank you for your sur­vey par­tic­i­pa­tion, we’ve been able to plant 101 trees in Hahn­hei­de, near Trit­tau, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the orga­ni­za­tion iplan­ta­tree®. We’re delight­ed that, through your tremen­dous sup­port, we’ve been able to con­tribute to refor­esta­tion and envi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion. Togeth­er, we’ve tak­en once again a step towards ensur­ing that our forests remain pre­served for future generations.

How­ev­er, we were not only pleased about your par­tic­i­pa­tion in the sur­vey, but also about the results achieved. Once again, we were able to improve in all areas com­pared to the pre­vi­ous year and have more than achieved the tar­get we set our­selves. The rat­ings ranged in the area of “good” to “very good”. We received spe­cial praise for our cus­tomer and ser­vice-ori­ent­ed work. The good avail­abil­i­ty of mate­ri­als and the quick advice from the teams were once again par­tic­u­lar­ly empha­sized. We are very pleased about the great feed­back. But of course we will con­tin­ue to work on our­selves in order to con­tin­u­ous­ly improve in the future.

Facts about Arbor Day

Arbor Day traces back to the efforts of Amer­i­can jour­nal­ist Julius Ster­ling Mor­ton, who sub­mit­ted an “Arbor Day Res­o­lu­tion” to the Nebras­ka gov­ern­ment in 1872. With­in 20 years, this day was adopt­ed across the entire Unit­ed States. Tra­di­tion­al­ly cel­e­brat­ed on April 10th first, this day involves tree plant­i­ng activities.

The Ger­man “Tag des Baumes” was first observed on April 25th, 1952. The then Fed­er­al Pres­i­dent Theodor Heuss and the Pres­i­dent of the ‘Schutzge­mein­schaft Deutsch­er Wald’ (Ger­man For­est Pro­tec­tion Asso­ci­a­tion), Fed­er­al Min­is­ter Robert Lehr, plant­ed a maple tree in the ‘Hof­garten’ park in Bonn. Arbor Day is com­mem­o­rat­ed every April with cer­e­mo­ni­al events, aim­ing to keep the impor­tance of forests for human­i­ty and the econ­o­my in focus.
