The National Association of Landscape Professionals, Fairfax, Virginia, announced that Stihl has become the exclusive partner of the association’s Young Professionals Network.

NALP’s Young Professionals Network provides a platform to connect, share experiences and exchange ideas with peers nationwide.

The Network, powered by Stihl, supports landscape, lawn care, irrigation, tree care and horticulture professionals who are building careers in the landscape industry.

“We are extremely pleased to be part of the association’s new initiative. For more than 20 years Stihl has supported the NALP’s college outreach through the National Collegiate Landscape Competition, and this new network is a natural extension of the effort to find, develop and support young professionals entering the landscape industry,” says Roger Phelps, corporate communications manager for Stihl. “We look forward to being a part of this exciting initiative.”

Industry professionals under 40 years old are encouraged to join the Network, participate in the Facebook group and subscribe to the popular Growing in the Green Industry podcast, a signature initiative of the Network.

“Stihl is a great industry champion that is committed to supporting the next generation,” says NALP CEO Britt Wood. “From their support of high school programs, to the National Collegiate Landscape Competition, to the Young Professionals Network, they are committed to helping build a strong future for the landscape industry.”
