Earth Day Tree Seedling Giveaway

OCPA celebrated Earth Day on April 22 by hosting the 3rd annual Tree Seedling Giveaway in Downtown Orlando. By giving away tree seedlings, OCPA encouraged residents in the community to plant new life around their homes and businesses.

In addition to the tree seedling giveaway, Rick Singh has led a variety of other green initiatives since taking office in 2013. In 2015, the office introduced 30 hybrid vehicles for field appraisers to use. The Prii fleet is not only environmentally friendly, but it is also projected to save taxpayers $1.2 million over 10 years.

Another notable program pioneered by the office is the employee commuter benefit program, available to staff of the property appraiser's office who take an alternate method of travel into work each day.

Rick Singh and OCPA staff had a great time passing out tree seedlings in honor of Earth Day. Did you get yours? Take a pic of your planted tree and share on social media with the hashtag #OCPAGreen!
