MILWAUKEE (Oct. 25, 2019) – The Milwaukee Bucks and American Transmission Co. (ATC) are partnering to make Wisconsin schools greener through the fourth consecutive Trees for Threes program. For every 3-pointer the Bucks make at Fiserv Forum during the 2019-2020 regular season, ATC will donate one tree. The trees will be planted at various schools located throughout Wisconsin following the conclusion of the season.

Last year ATC donated 573 trees to more than 100 schools across Wisconsin, as the Bucks knocked-down a franchise record 573 three-pointers during the 2018-19 season, marking the fourth most threes made by any team at home in NBA history. Throughout the course of this partnership a total of 1,271 trees have been donated to make Wisconsin schools greener.

“ATC supports initiatives that create a positive impact on the environment, education, and health and well-being,” said ATC’s Director of Corporate Communications, Anne Spaltholz. “Planting trees can be a valuable lesson for students. We hope the Bucks score hundreds more trees for area schools this season so that we can help create greener environments for years to come.”

School administrators can sign up to have their school receive one of the donated trees on ATC’s registration page, beginning Oct. 26.
