As high-tech consultants on issues surrounding urban forestry, Cross Timbers Forestry is considered a national leader in its field. What impressed our judges, however, were not only the numerous professional achievements, but the company’s well-deserved reputation for volunteering its time to help students, communities and its own industry.
The city parks in the company’s hometown of Tecumseh have benefited in many ways from the guidance of Cross Timbers personnel. The firm also is very active with Oklahoma Envirothon, a competition for high school students focusing on environmental management and problem-solving.
The Society of American Foresters wouldn’t be the same today without the leadership provided by Cross Timbers Forestry, and the company was instrumental in the Tornado Re-Leaf Project that resulted from the devastating storms in 1999. Guidebooks, interactive websites and volunteer training are among the tools often employed in the company’s impressive arsenal.
The judges called it the perfect example of involved corporate citizenship. Keep Oklahoma Beautiful agrees completely. Cross Timbers Forestry, your excellence in stewardship is corporate Oklahoma’s inspiration, and we salute you!
