Leominster Credit Union participates in the Greening the Gateway Cities Program

LEOMINSTER, MA (July 18, 2016) — Leominster Credit Union (LCU) is proud to participate in the Greening the Gateway Cities Program (GGCP). LCU provided an area where nine trees were planted as part of the program along with a two year commitment to care for the trees.

This GGCP program is an environmental and energy efficiency program is designed to reduce household heating and cooling energy use by increasing tree canopy cover in urban residential areas in the state’s Gateway Cities.  GGCP is a partnership between the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA), the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Urban & Community Forestry Program, the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), along with Gateway Cities and local grassroots organizations. The program plants trees (ranging from 6ft to 10ft tall) with a goal of covering 5-10% of the target neighborhoods in new tree canopy cover.
