Arborjet Celebrates Arbor Day
Happy Arbor Day! For over 15 years, Arborjet has focused on developing the leading tree injection equipment and formulations to protect trees. In this time, tens-of-millions of trees have been saved from pests and disease and hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and services have been donated to non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting urban trees.
Working with TREE Fund & Others Protecting Trees
As a Diamond Partner, Arborjet regularly donates to the TREE Fund. Through the auspices of TREE Fund grants have been made to such institutions as the Media Working Group, Inc., Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the Colorado Tree Coalition, among others.
Additional grants have been made to other non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting urban trees, such as Michigan State University, University of Florida, The Institute for Work & the Economy, The Huntington, and many more.
Supporting our Youth with the Taking Root Scholarship Program
Arborjet’s Taking Root” College Scholarship Program helps young students fulfill their dreams of entering careers in the arboriculture industry. As a leader in the care of America’s urban and natural forests, Arborjet is committed to giving promising high school seniors the assistance and financial support they need to pursue this career path.
Each year the “Taking Root” Scholarship Program recognizes 10 graduating high school seniors who have demonstrated achievement in their schools and communities, and who plan to bring their skills and talents to the arboriculture industry. Each will receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue full-time studies in Forestry, Plant Sciences, Horticulture, Entomology, Environmental Science or a related major at an accredited two-year or four-year college. This year’s Taking Root Scholarship launched earlier this week!
One Easy Way to Save Trees
Did you know that global trade is moving tree pests into new countries and causing millions of trees to die? Pests like Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle have made their way to the United States from Asia. Already, millions of trees have been destroyed because of invasive pests like these. Transporting infested firewood will spread these pests. Regions of the United States have been quarantined for the purpose of not transporting firewood. Review the latest EAB Quarantine Map and help save trees by not moving firewood.
