New Grants Available in 2019

TREE Fund is pleased to announce the completion of two endowment funds which will both issue inaugural grants in 2019. 

The $25,000 Bob Skiera Memorial Fund Building Bridges Initiative Grant supports projects which will help arborists and urban foresters communicate the value of trees and urban forests on a national basis through technology transfer and engagement with developers, builders, civil engineers, city planners, elected officials and other policymakers. 

The $10,000 Barborinas Family Fund Grant supports projects focused on tree planting and transplantation techniques, and the improvement of tree varieties for urban conditions, to include investigations into root and soil science. 

Many thanks to the Skiera and Barborinas families for their visionary leadership on these funds, and to all who helped make these grants a reality.
