"Forward-thinking municipalities and certified arborists are using trunk injections to ensure the country's trees in our urban forests and neighborhoods remain beautiful now and in the future," said Russ Davis, President and COO of Arborjet. "As an environmentally responsible treatment, trunk injections cost significantly less than removing and replacing mature trees and help preserve the environmental, economic and aesthetic benefits trees bring to us all."
In support of Arborjet's mission to sustain the future of the world's trees, the company inaugurated a grant program in 2012. These grants are designed to assist universities, Extension Services and non-profits with funding for research and education that will lead to new and innovative ways to protect the urban forest. Grant beneficiaries include:
Descanso Gardens Huntington Library and Gardens The TREE Fund And a host of universities working on projects to protect the urban forest
Additionally, the company donated Arborjet products to help save 115 trees at a Boy Scout Camp in the Bastrop State Forest in Central Texas and 36 ash trees in Sanford Village Park in Michigan as part of an ongoing Eagle Scout service project.Mr. Davis added, "With the downturn in the economy, funding for research in the field of urban forest protection has also faltered. Our hope is that by working with these organizations, we can continue advancing the industry and save our communities' trees."
