Stihl teamed with City of Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation and K&D Round’s Landscape Services to clean up and renovate Beach Garden Park in Virginia Beach, VA. This two-day project celebrated the annual Professional Landcare Network’s (PLANET) Day of Service, a nationwide Earth Day event.
PLANET Day of Service was organized to demonstrate the importance of maintaining green spaces in recognition of Earth Day. Stihl Inc., a supporting sponsor of the national event, joined many companies performing a variety of volunteer lawn and landscape projects to give back to their communities around the country. An estimated 1,900 people working on 140 projects in 36 states, Canada and the Virgin Islands participated in PLANET Day of Service this year, contributing an estimated value of $660,000.
“We were thrilled to collaborate with Stihl to give back to the community and improve the environment for the fifth year. We beautify the outdoors and make it more accessible and enjoyable to spend time with family and friends in an inviting setting,” said Joel Vanscoy, one of the owners and senior vice president of K&D Round’s Landscape Services.
