TREE Fund Board of Trustees

Our board members share a passion for healthy trees in our communities and healthy growth in the tree care industry. Our all-volunteer, working board represents a broad spectrum of expertise in commercial, municipal and utility arboriculture, academia, research, manufacturing and communications. TREE Fund embraces diversity to ensure that a range of perspectives and experiences are incorporated in the work of its board; arboriculture experience is not required.
