Answer Financial Inc. and TreePeople Team Up to Make Los Angeles’ Chatsworth Oaks Park Greener

Encino, CA; June 9, 2014 Answer Financial® Inc., the original insurance comparison company, teamed up with TreePeople to care for trees in Chatsworth Oaks Park, a public park maintained and operated by the City of Los Angeles. On May 16 in near record-breaking temperatures, volunteers from Answer Financial dug in to improve conditions for 22 trees throughout the 3-acre park.

“TreePeople does great work in our community, planting and nurturing trees to provide shade for families enjoying our public parks,” comments Craig Lozofsky, Chief Marketing Officer at Answer. “I was proud to see our team jump at the opportunity to get their hands dirty and help out during this drought.”

“We are grateful to the caring employees of Answer Financial for their help in saving LA’s stressed trees during this year of record drought,” says TreePeople Founder and President Andy Lipkis. “It takes all of us to ‘adopt’ trees and ensure they have enough water to make it through the dry season. Answer Financial’s service has helped TreePeople’s mission to create a sustainable Los Angeles.”
