Good Roots grant winners announced statewide

The Alabama Power Foundation has awarded 38 Good Roots grants totaling more than $33,000 to help communities across Alabama plant trees.

In partnership with the Alabama Forestry Association and the Alabama Urban Forestry Association, the foundation provides Good Roots grants to cities, towns and nonprofit organizations to purchase trees. Good Roots helps beautify and strengthen communities with tree-planting projects that benefit the environment and can support recreation and economic development efforts. Volunteers plant the Good Roots trees and maintain them.

“Community is extremely important to Alabama Power,” said John Hudson, president of the Alabama Power Foundation. “Good Roots is one example of our dedication to serving many different needs within Alabama communities.”
