One of our developers recently reported a bug he'd found in Kentico (software we use to develop websites) Ordinarily a rather dull and unremarkable event. He was surprised however (and rather delighted) to receive an e-mail from them a few days later telling him that due to his discovery they'd planted a tree in his honour. It even has a label with his name on it!
Its called "Trees for bugs'
Each tree is listed in their Tree Gallery and marked on Google maps so it can be visited.
So far they've planted a total of 440 trees
They have a league table for bugs by team.
Twice a year their developers have to go and plant a tree for each of the bugs they're responsible for.
What a great idea, the environments a winner. It makes finding bugs fun. Its good PR and marketing and it keeps the programmers on their toes!
