Few people would argue the environmental, economic and aesthetic benefits of a thriving urban forest. Even fewer, though, ever stop to think about how much thought and effort goes into planting, nurturing and preserving the trees within it. That work is hard, dangerous and often thankless, but its benefits are legion – to property owners, businesses, governments, families, children, retirees, EVERYONE! Ralph Waldo Emerson famously wrote that the creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn, and the TREE Fund’s mission mirrors that sentiment: we multiply the value of our fundraised assets many times over by investing them in crucial tools – science, safety, outreach, education – to benefit our tree care professionals, thereby strengthening all of the communities in which they live and work. From one to many. From small to large. From individuals to EVERYONE! Please support this far-reaching work with a contribution to our annual operating campaign before December 31. Your gift will be well managed, multiplied, and difference making – for EVERYONE!
