Last week, I planted trees.I planted trees with more than 60 Applied Materials employees and their family members.In total, we planted 1,006 loblolly pines. Although the simple act of digging a hole, sliding in the sapling and gently patting the surrounding earth seems straight forward, I knew that we were planting much more.
