Arborjet Launches “Saving America’s Iconic Trees” Campaign

Iconic Trees Banner

Arborjet Inc., a revolutionary plant health care company, today announced the launch of “Saving America’s Iconic Trees,” the company’s latest initiative to ensure the health and longevity of the country’s trees. The campaign targets America’s most beloved trees – from the most awe-inspiring in terms of size and age, to those that dazzle us with their beauty and provide shelter and comfort to a community – offering complimentary treatment to prevent insects, disease and poor health. Throughout 2018, Arborjet will donate high-profile treatments and host educational events across the country. The company invites private homeowners and state, city, town and municipal leaders to nominate iconic trees in their communities for potential recognition and treatment by visiting www.arborjet.com/saving-americas-iconic-trees.

Arborjet will donate environmentally responsible, fast-acting and long-lasting trunk injection treatments to these trees. These are the same treatments forward-thinking certified arborists and over 150 municipalities use to ensure the country’s neighborhoods and urban forests remain beautiful for generations to come. Trunk injections are delivered directly into a tree’s vascular system and sealed in the tree, limiting environmental exposure and allowing for responsible treatment on both public and private properties.

While trees may appear imposing and strong, even the most amazing are vulnerable to disease, drought and invasive and devastating pests like the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). To date, EAB has been found in 31 states and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec and is wreaking havoc on urban forests, already having destroyed hundreds of millions of ash trees. Arborjet is committed to expanding its efforts to save America’s iconic trees, ash and beyond, including the following already under the company’s care:

  • The 41 ash trees at the Grove of Remembrance, New Jersey’s living memorial to victims of the September 11th attacks, overlooking the Statue of Liberty
  • The 20 stately ash trees at the New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston, Massachusetts
  • A nearly 300-year old sycamore tree in Buffalo, New York, the city’s oldest tree
  • The oldest, largest ash tree in Illinois, which is at least 150 years old and stands over 91 feet high
  • The New Jersey white ash state champion tree, which at 21 feet and 3 inches in circumference, standing 115 feet high with a 111 foot crown, is the largest ash tree in the United States
  • 7 ash trees at the Indiana Governor’s residence, all 100 years old
  • The Hawaiian “Ohana” Banyan tree, planted nearly a century ago by the Hawaiian Ohana (family) representing their attachment to the Aina (land), with a diameter of 150 inches and a canopy spread of nearly 145 feet
  • The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California
  • 115 trees at the Boy Scout Camp in the Bastrop State Forest in Central Texas
  • 35 majestic ash trees lining Cleveland, Ohio’s West 50th neighborhood between Bridge Avenue and Franklin Boulevard

“Arborjet is dedicated to helping communities maintain their forest canopy, treating more than one million trees since we started more than a decade ago,” said Russ Davis, President and COO of Arborjet. “This year we’re making a big push to find and preserve trees that are truly special, whether it’s for their age and size, their impact on the area around them or their historical importance. If we act now, we can ensure that future generations will be able to reap the benefits of these special trees.”
