Arbor Day Foundation Recognizes Ameren as a ‘Tree Line USA’ Utility

For the 13th consecutive year, the Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Ameren as a Tree Line USA utility for its proper tree pruning, planting and care in Ameren’s service territory.

Tree Line USA, a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters, recognizes utilities for pursuing practices that protect and enhance America’s urban trees.

“Trees are a critical part of urban landscapes all across the United States,” said John Rosenow founder and CEO of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Service providers like Ameren show that taking care of urban trees is good for business, for customers and for the broader community.”

“For years, we have been committed to helping educate customers about the need to plant ‘the right tree in the right place’ and supporting volunteer tree-planting programs,” said Thomas R. Voss, chairman, president and CEO of Ameren.
