Attorney Zach Pilchen has been working on environmental issues for the duration of his career, including a term as a law clerk for the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Waste and Chemical Enforcement Division and Office of Compliance. An experienced environmental attorney, Zach Pilchen is a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER).

ABA SEER serves as a professional development and networking organization for attorneys involved in environmental law. The section values public service and makes many service opportunities available to members, including the One Million Trees Project, a hands-on tree planting program. In recognition of the environmental importance of trees, the section has sponsored tree plantings at all its major events since the One Million Trees Project started in 2009. In addition to reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide, trees contribute to the overall health of wildlife and communities. So far, SEER has planted more than 50,000 trees and encourages members to host tree planting events in their communities to keep that number rising.
