Environmental Action A ‘Win’ For All Says Marcus Hiles

Marcus Hiles’ commitment to eco-friendly stewardship extends well beyond the doors of the communities he builds. allows a bold tree-planting initiative, Hiles is increasing the volume of a subdivision’s tree canopy to exceed 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 points out.
