 THE NATIONAL TREE TRUST AND MAJOR FOREST PRODUCT COMPANIES
 JOIN FORCES ON NATIONAL TREE BANK PROGRAM
 WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Tree Trust and several major forest product companies announced their partnership in the National Tree Bank program. Participating companies in 1992's program include: Georgia-Pacific Corporation, International Paper, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, Mead, Mill Creek Farm and Weyerhaeuser. Together they have committed to produce approximately 200,000 hardwood seedlings of varying species.
 The National Tree Bank is an ambitious part of the National Tree Trust's multi-faceted program. Participating companies in the forest products industry will grow a stock of hardwood seedlings to donate to the National Tree Bank. The seedlings, along with pots and soil, will then be granted by the Trust to organizations who will pot and care for them until the trees are of appropriate size to out-plant in their communities. These companies have given tremendous support to the National Tree Bank program by showing a genuine desire as corporate citizens to improve, maintain and enhance the country's urban and community tree population.
 In addition, participants already signed up for 1993's National Tree Bank program include: Champion International, Georgia-Pacific Corporation, International Paper, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, Mead, Mill Creek Farm, Potlatch, Simpson Timber Company, Temple- Inland, Westvaco and Weyerhaeuser. These companies have committed to provide approximately 800,000 hardwood seedlings of varying species.
 The National Tree Trust is a non-profit environmental organization designated by President George Bush to be a catalyst in the growing, planting and maintenance of trees in urban areas and along the nation's highways through the use of volunteer groups. It is the mission of the National Tree Trust to renew a spirit of community self-worth through volunteer community tree planting, resulting in an enhanced environment for urban residents.
