Noranda Bauxite Observes Jamaica's 2020 National Tree Planting Day by Planting 2,020 Trees
Noranda Jamaica Bauxite Partners II (Noranda Bauxite) planted 2,020 trees to observe Jamaica’s National Tree Planting Day on 2nd October. Noranda Bauxite’s participation in this event is indicative of the longstanding partnership that exists between agriculture and mining in St. Ann, Jamaica.
Most of the trees will be planted on selected lots across the company’s mining lease areas in St. Ann by approximately 50 Noranda Bauxite management and trade union employees. The company will also be joined in its planting efforts by representatives of the Forestry Department, the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), and the Noranda Community Councils.
It is said that 500 trees will be distributed to its employees for planting in the communities in which they live.
