Members of the Houston Bar Association (HBA) and their families helped plant 1,100 trees at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. The event was a Houston Bar Association’s Lawyers Against Waste Committee project, and was part of the Houston Arboretum’s Arbor Day Celebration. HBA President, Brent Benoit (pictured below), had the idea for the project.

More than 300 HBA volunteers were on hand to help plant the trees, which were purchased from Doremus Native Plants through HBA member donations.
