HOUSTON, June 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apache Corporation (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA) today announced that it has opened the application season for its 2019-2020 Tree Grant Program. The Apache Tree Grant Program has provided more than 4.6 million trees across 17 states since its inception in 2005. Last year, the program donated over 50,000 trees to 59 nonprofits, including the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, the Tree Folks and the city of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
The Tree Grant Program is open to nonprofits where Apache has operations in the U.S. — currently in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana and Wyoming.
