Mansfield-Based Mouser Electronics Partners with ADI to Plant Up to 50K Trees for U.S. Reforestation Projects

The new program extends the companies' 2023 charitable initiative underway in Europe, where 65,000 trees are already slated to be planted in Germany, England, and Ireland.

Mansfield-based electronics powerhouse Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a global semiconductor leader, have pledged to donate funds to One Tree Planted with the goal to plant up to 50,000 trees across the United States.

Mouser is an authorized global distributor for new semiconductors and electronic components, and ADI is a global semiconductor leader with locations in Dallas, Richardson, and Plano.

The companies said that starting now, for every Mouser order placed in the U.S. region including at least one line of ADI products, One Tree Planted will plant a tree in reforestation projects across the United States, with a focus on urban forestation and forest fire recovery.

“At Mouser, we’re strongly committed to making a positive impact on our communities, and we are excited to expand this charitable program to the United States,” Kevin Hess, SVP of marketing at Mouser, said in a statement. “Together with ADI, we can contribute to helping restore forests, habitats, wildlife and more.”

Extends an effort underway in Europe

The North American program is an extension of a successful 2023 charitable initiative underway in Europe where Mouser and ADI have seen over 65,000 orders placed to date, to be equally divided between projects supporting Climate Resilient Restoration in Germany, Essex Forest Initiative in England, and Nationwide Community Tree Cover in Ireland.

The trees will be planted in the fall during the planting season, the companies said.

“At ADI, we have a long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability and are pleased to work with Mouser and One Tree Planted to support this initiative towards planting trees across the United States,” Nitin Mathur, chief marketing and digital transformation officer at ADI, said in a statement.

One Tree Planted is a nonprofit group focused on global reforestation.

As an official partner of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, One Tree has planted more than 40 million trees in more than 47 countries globally since 2014. In 2021, the nonprofit planted more than 23.5 million trees, more than doubling its impact from 2020. One Tree Planted seeks to re-establish woodland, improve water and soil quality, as well as create habitats for wildlife in areas that were historically forested, the organization said.
