U-Haul is partnered with two non-profit organizations, The Conservation Fund and Tree Canada, in an effort to plant trees to offset carbon emissions generated during customers’ moves. Beginning in 2007, U-Haul offered customers a chance to donate $3, $5 or $10 at checkout to plant trees and offset their moving-related emissions. Native trees planted on protected lands help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, restore critical habitat for wildlife and create new outdoor recreation areas we can all enjoy. As of May 2012, U-Haul stores in the metro Detroit area have helped collect customer donations to plant more than 2,000 trees.
