Woburn, Massachusetts-based Arborjet | Ecologel through a partnership with the International Society of Arboriculture, Atlanta, have made a $15,000 donation in support of the TREE Fund. The Fund works to sustain the world’s urban forests by providing funding for scientific research, education programs, and scholarships related to arboriculture and urban forestry. Arborjet is working with various ISA chapters across the country, where they have matched donations to help grow this fundraising initiative. Through their virtual conferences and events, Arborjet has matched contributions with the following ISA chapters in 2020: New England ISA, ISA Southern Chapter, Western Chapter ISA, Illinois Arborist Association and ISA Texas.

The campaign will continue throughout 2021 with virtual events planned by New York, Indiana, Ohio and Wisconsin Chapters.

“We are pleased to work with ISA on this important fundraising campaign, especially during these challenging times. It is our goal to further Arborjet and ISA’s shared mission to raise funds to preserve trees to protect the country’s urban forests, facilitate important industry research, and provide educational opportunities,” says Russ Davis, president and CEO of Arborjet.
