Omaha, Neb. (May 9, 2014) – Physicians Mutual has been awarded the Promise to the Earth Award from the Arbor Day Foundation. The award recognizes the sustained commitment and leadership by a corporation partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation on special projects. The company was presented with the distinctive award at the recent Arbor Day Foundation’s annual Arbor Day Awards held in Nebraska City, Neb. 

“Physicians Mutual is honored to receive the Promise to the Earth Award. Partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation is a wonderful way to help sustain the environment while also paying tribute to our customers,” said Bob Gunia, Physicians Mutual senior vice president.

Physicians Mutual has helped plant more than 250,000 trees over the past ten years in its partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, including such sites as the Ocala National Forest in Florida, the Huron-Manistee National Forests in Michigan, and Bastrop State Park in Texas.
