Domtar, alongside landowners and partner PRINTING United Alliance, recently completed a tree-planting initiative in the Ashdown, Arkansas, area. This effort followed Domtar’s commitment to plant two trees for each registrant at the PRINTING United Expo, which was held in October last year in Atlanta.

Mark J. Subers, president of PRINTING United Expo, says, “As the printing and packaging industry, with great partners such as Domtar, we can take actionable steps to not only ensure we are following best practices, but to also be proactive. I’m thrilled that the team at Domtar is collaborating with the Alliance to drive this initiative forward.”

The Expo brings together leading media and associations representing market segments across printing and the graphic arts to showcase the latest solutions, technology, trends and education. PRINTING United Alliance is the most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in North America.

For this tree-planting initiative, we purchased about 60,000 seedlings for last year’s registrants. Those seedlings have been planted in the area near our Ashdown, Arkansas, mill in coordination with local landowners. Late winter is the appropriate planting time, and the seedlings will grow in the coming years, replenishing forestlands in the area.
