Help me plant 1,000 trees during SXSW

We’re doing something cool at Emma during SXSW Interactive. The plan is to plant 1,000 trees. All you have to do is visit: www.myemma.com/sxsw and vote “yes” for trees. Each vote received will equal one tree. If 1,000 votes occur during the first 4 days of SXSW the trees get planted. Easy as that!

  • Glad to see Emma is still promoting trees. Oh, I hope Cedar is eligible… I do love Cedar!

    Great idea Dave.

    FYI – we met a few months ago at the NAMA luncheon. I’m only just now finding your blog. I like!

    Have fun in Austin!

  • Hi there!
    Just a coupla of questions… who is planting the trees? Where are they going to be planted?

  • Hey Dave, I love it. I just voted “yes” of course to have a tree planted! I guess I wanted to say a few things if you didn’t mind.
    With my woodturning art I am extremely sensitive to forests, in fact I have a ritual. Every Wednesday evening I go through my area in my car to find wood items that people have thrown away. In fact last week I found a full bed set made from 100% Maple. These will be turned into about 100 Bottle stoppers after I re-saw the wood, glue up wood blanks, and burn any small leftovers to heat my shop.

    Secondly, I would love to talk about towns, cities, and states getting better at recycling old trees. Two years ago we had a huge October storm here in Buffalo that brought down thousands of trees including two large Maples in my own front yard. The city/town would not allow any pickup of any of this wood to be used in a proposed art project to re-tree the area.

    Outside contractors were supposed to grind the wood for mulch and I still see hundreds of these trees to this day just laying in empty lots rotting.

    This sucks. We need to be more environmentally acute. If the public was better informed, and we created mass awareness, I think things would be different.

    In the coming weeks I will actually be using a lot of the wood harvested off of my lot from felled trees in that storm that I was able to save. I will be selling these pieces for the “Frozen Pea Fund” in honor of Susan Reynolds. Susan is from my area originally. These pieces should be ready next week Friday for anyone interested.

    Dave, sorry about my rant here, but we need to be more aware of trees as a living breathing thing that ultimately helps us live and breathe. Thanks for the post.
