PHLY aims to support the restoration of devastated forests and communities for a second year

PHLY 80K Trees addresses the imperative need to build healthy forests and ecosystems to provide greater security to communities, including PHLY’s policyholders

Philadelphia Insurance Companies (PHLY) is continuing its partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation with a goal of planting 80,000 trees for the second year in a row. PHLY reached its 2015 goal of planting 80,000 trees through the combined efforts of its employees, independent agents and brokers, and policyholders.

In January 2016, fifty PHLY employees traveled to Bastrop, TX to complete the 2015 PHLY 80K Trees campaign. The group joined TreeFolks and Texas Parks & Wildlife to plant the final 6,000 trees in Bastrop State Park, a park and community devastated by wildfires.

To achieve the goal of planting 80,000 trees in 2016, PHLY is once again inviting its independent agents and brokers and policyholders to sign up for paperless statements. PHLY will plant ten (10) trees for each agent who enrolls in direct deposit of commissions. PHLY will plant fifteen (15) trees on behalf of each customer who enrolls in electronic billing.

“Environmental changes have drastically affected our industry, requiring that we closely look at how to best serve our customer,” shared Bob O’Leary, president and chief executive officer of Philadelphia Insurance Companies. “PHLY 80K Trees addresses the imperative need to build healthy forests and ecosystems to provide greater security to communities, including PHLY’s policyholders.”

There are over one million acres in desperate need of replanting due to natural disasters according to the U.S. Forest Service. PHLY’s efforts to support the planting of 80,000 trees will help provide greater security to communities, including PHLY’s policyholders.
