By the end of the second quarter of 2012, CubeSmart will have planted more than 20,000 trees.

"We are very excited about our continued involvement with American Forests and are pleased to be reaching this milestone in the Plant a Tree program," says Joel Keaton, the Vice President of Marketing at CubeSmart. "It has been a successful partnership from the start and gives us a great opportunity to join with our Customers in an effort to preserve our environment."
