For every Husqvarna chainsaw purchase made in Tractor Supply stores or on its website, five trees will be planted within a forest of need in areas that were severely affected by last year’s hurricanes, including Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico. Tractor Supply has committed to donating up to 50,000 trees. The hurricane recovery initiative will run through October 28th. For more information about the Arbor Day Foundation and its hurricane tree recovery efforts, visit ArborDay.org.
