Western Property Rim Services founder Marcus Hiles has made a conscious effort to increase the number of trees in his development projects. Western Rim and Hiles personally have gifted to the general public over 59 acres of parkland to the general public. Much of this land has 100 to 150 year old oak and cedar trees along with lakes, artesian feed rivers and much indigenous wildlife. There are 3 blocks of land donated. the block sizes were 44 acres, 6 acres and 9 acres all based in a north Texan city.
From a private perspective, Marcus Hiles and his companies are responsible for the creation of hundreds of acres of private parklands in the suburbs of Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio.
In addition to donating parklands Marcus’s company’s plant trees at a greater rate than any government development regulation. There are many benefits from trees and Marcus Hiles has implemented tree-planting policies into his company’s processes. Trees beautify, reduce the temperature, eat pollution and create oxygen for us to breathe. In addition to recycling programs and other schemes designed to improve the environment.
Hiles company’s planted 3153 trees last year, in one decade this number will approach 25,000 trees. A typical tree sequesters 48 pounds of carbon dioxide every year and produces enough oxygen for two people to breathe.
