GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are once again going green.
The team's First Downs for Trees program is donating more than 700 trees this year.
The program donates trees for every first down the Packers earned last season.
Some of those trees were planted Thursday at the WPS property in Green Bay.
Eighteen other Brown County communities will also receive trees.
Packers officials say the program gives players one more reason to earn those extra yards.
"We have joked about this in the past, I think it's given our offense a pretty good incentive the last few years to get a few more first downs," said Mark Murphy, Packers president and CEO.
Murphy says the program has planted more than 2,000 trees since 2011. It has also raised more than $45,000 for the Wisconsin DNR.
