For Marcus Hiles, environmental commitment moves beyond the doors of the residences he builds. Western Rim’s bold tree-planting initiatives are increasing the volume of each community’s tree canopy above pre-development levels. “Each of the 3,000 trees we planted last year sequesters over 45 pounds of carbon dioxide and pollutants while releasing oxygen,” he noted. Additionally, Hiles is working to protect existing plant life s such as the collection of 100-year-old oak trees living in a designed park next to one Western Rim site. Marcus Hiles views environmental responsibility as a win-win situation – for both community members and the planet. “Our bold goal is to lessen carbon emissions by more than 500,000 metric tons over the next decade,” he says. “In the process, we’ll deliver energy savings to our residents and create sustainable, livable communities.”
