Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, has won the 2012 TXU Energy Partnership Award for its support of Texas Trees Foundation.
The TXU Energy Partnership Award is presented to a corporation that has partnered with Texas Trees Foundation and demonstrated continued dedication to the mission of creating healthy communities through tree planting, education, and outreach.
"Esurance has shown its commitment to the environment through a continued partnership with Texas Trees Foundation that has resulted in the planting of hundreds of trees across North Texas, and we are indebted to their dedication," said Betsy Orton, director of development and marketing at Texas Trees Foundation. "Esurance also helped to pilot the Trees & Technology high school program that educated high school students about the importance of trees, careers in forestry, and the connections between trees and technology."

As a proud sponsor since 2005, Esurance has contributed on a number of the foundation's initiatives and efforts, including several seedling planting projects and the Hamilton Park Urban Tree Farm.

"Esurance has a long-standing commitment to the environment and investing resources in local communities. We thank the Texas Trees Foundation for everything they do and are honored to receive this award."
