Seattle, WA (WiredPRNews.com) Pearl Jam will hold a restoration event to encourage fans to plant trees at Hartman Park between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on March 5th, 2011 to offset the carbon emissions that accumulated from their 2009 world tour.
“Pearl Jam’s 2009 world tour emitted 7,000 metric tons of carbon in the atmosphere and the only way to offset this is by planting trees,” said by a Seattle tree service specialist in a conversation. “However, if Pearl Jam will do all of this by themselves, it will probably take forever.”
That’s the reason why the popular band is looking for volunteers to help them out. So far there are 100 volunteers who have already signed up for the event.
“The participants in this event will restore approximately 33 acres of parkland forests particularly in the areas of Kent, Kirkland, Seattle and Redmond,” a Seattle land clearing specialist was also heard saying.
The participants to the tree planting day are requested to come in and dress for the weather and to be ready to get down and dirty. Participants are also advised to wear long pants rather than shorts, wear sleeves and sturdy shoes and bring a long a water bottle. Some tree experts will be around to support the event as well.
