Yokohama Tire Corporation held a tree-planting ceremony as part of its "Yokohama Forever Forest" project on December 3, 2010. Forever Forest is a long-term, global initiative by YTC's parent company in Japan, The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. (YRC) to plant approximately 500,000 trees by its centennial anniversary in 2017 at its facilities worldwide.

More than 150 participants consisting of Yokohama employees and guests, including Fullerton Mayor Don Bankhead, worked together to plant more than 500 tree seedlings, which will help absorb carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide traps heat from leaving the atmosphere, thus contributing to global warming.
