Arborjet Celebrates Arbor Day 2018 with Events Involving Community Across the United States
Arborjet Inc., a revolutionary plant health care company, today announced its plans to celebrate Arbor Day, which falls on April 27th, 2018. Arborjet will host several community events across the country, including opportunities for people to learn how to best plant trees, watch experts donate treatments to iconic trees, participate in creative planting workshops, and much more.
“Arbor Day is a special holiday for us because although we take strides to protect our nation’s trees year-round, it’s an opportunity to encourage others to join us in thinking about ways to sustain our environment,” said Russ Davis, President and Chief Operating Officer, Arborjet. “This year, we wanted to put special emphasis on the power of community. That’s why we’ll be providing opportunities for the public to learn more about what we do and get their hands dirty themselves. With the help of others, we can hopefully not only save one tree, but the whole forest.”
