Liaison Toolbox

TREE Fund Liaisons provide a vital link to allied organizations in the fields of arboriculture and urban forestry – primarily local ISA Chapters. Liaisons are a critical communication conduit between TREE Fund and the industry organization they represent. Liaisons “friendraise” for TREE Fund by sharing TREE Fund news and research results with their organization, working a TREE Fund booth at their annual Chapter conference, encouraging their Chapter and its members to support TREE Fund, and connecting people in their circle of influence with TREE Fund and its activities.
