iGPS Funds Planting of 200,000 Trees in Oregon

Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS), operator of a pallet rental service providing all-plastic pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, has funded the planting of 200,000 new trees in the Deschutes National Forest in central Oregon, an area in serious need of reforestation.

iGPS' funding is one element of its partnership with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) in which the company has contributed funds each time an iGPS pallet is rented. The Deschutes plantings bring the total number of seedlings planted under this program to 300,000, which include earlier plantings in California's San Bernardino National Forest.

Founded by Congress in 1991, the National Forest Foundation works to conserve, restore and enhance America's 193-million-acre National Forest System. Through community-based strategies and public-private partnerships, the NFF aims to enhance wildlife habitat, revitalizes wildfire-damaged landscapes, restore watersheds and improve recreational resources.
