Our Environment | Our Future
Michael Ziman, Owner and President of Ziman Development, is the proud founder of One Tree Pledge, a sustainability campaign for commercial and residential builders, as well as homeowners.
Pledging to plant 1 tree for every square foot of the home, we can mitigate the carbon emissions from our home’s use of electricity and natural gas.
Every $1 donated result in 1 tree planted.
