While I neither do research nor receive funding from the TREE Fund, my work could not exist without it. TREE Fund-supported research into structural soils, tree staking, transplanting, pruning, and tree preservation all have influenced my work in developing better techniques for urban tree planting designs, and have given me the confidence to write, lecture about, utilize and recommend new approaches.
