Arborjet has launched a $50,000 grant program in partnership with the TREE (Tree Research and Education Endowment) Fund.
The TREE Fund works to sustain the world’s urban forests by supporting new scientists in the field via funding for scientific research, education programs, and scholarships related to arboriculture and urban forestry.
The company has partnered with the TREE Fund to offer grants for university extension education and for the education of other natural resource outreach professionals, green space managers and 501(c)(3) organizations that serve communities impacted by the invasive Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).
Arborjet has also appointed the company’s Technology Advancement Manager Dr. Don Grosman, Ph.D. to serve as liaison to State University Extension.
He previously served as coordinator of the Forest Pest Management Cooperative within the Texas A&M Forest Service, holds a Ph.D. in Entomology from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and a Master of Science in Forestry from the University of Maine at Orono.
