BMW of North America announced its support of NYC Parks for its TreesCount! 2015 program with a donation of 20 BMW i3 vehicles. With these BMW i3 vehicles, TreesCount! staff and volunteers can easily travel throughout the five boroughs to map more than 600,000 street trees, helping to ensure a greener future for the City of New York, its residents and visitors.

Every element of BMW’s i3 and i8 electric and hybrid vehicles, from the carbon fiber frames to the keys, is built using high quality renewable materials and sources.

We are proud to donate 20 BMW i3 vehicles to help the City collect data that will enable it to understand the environmental and economic benefits of the street trees and inspire a new generation of New Yorkers who care about their city,” said Manuel Sattig, Head of Brand Strategy and Communication, BMW of North America.
