Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program Opens U.S. Applications for 2024-2025 Planting Season

May 6, 2024

HOUSTON, May 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Apache Corporation, a subsidiary of APA Corporation (Nasdaq: APA), today announced the opening of applications for the Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program’s 2024-2025 planting season. To receive tree grants, applicants must be based in the United States.

Since 2005, the program has partnered with more than 1,000 nonprofit organizations and government agencies across the company’s U.S. operating areas. Last year, the program surpassed a significant milestone of donating more than 5 million trees to U.S. partners and expanded internationally with the launch of a similar program in Scotland, where the company also has oil and gas operations.

“At Apache, we believe that energy production and environmental stewardship work hand-in-hand,” said John J. Christmann IV, Apache’s chief executive officer. “Responsible energy development and conservation are not mutually exclusive. The impressive growth of our program demonstrates how as an oil and gas company we can responsibly meet global energy needs while also supporting large-scale conservation projects and the enhancement of public greenspaces. The program helps ensure that future generations can benefit from the steps we take today to create a more sustainable world.”

The program is open to U.S.-based nonprofit organizations and government agencies in states where Apache has oil and gas operations — currently Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana. Grant recipients must request a minimum of 50 one-gallon, three-gallon or five-gallon trees per project or a minimum of 1,000 bareroot seedlings. Additionally, recipients must agree to receive all awarded trees in a single delivery and are required to provide ongoing care and maintenance of the trees. Grant awards will be announced Oct. 1, 2024, and all trees must be received and planted or distributed no later than May 31, 2025.

Last season, the program donated more than 206,000 trees to 61 nonprofit partner organizations in the U.S., including reforestation efforts with Houston Wilderness, an alliance of business, environmental and government interests protecting the Gulf Coast ecoregion, and Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance, which works to protect and restore the ecological heritage of the Hermit’s Peak region in New Mexico. The company also partnered with Keep San Angelo Beautiful in West Texas to help teach the local community about environmental stewardship and supported conservation projects with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation.
