The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) announces a pledged donation of $50,000 to be given to the Tree Research and Education Endowment (TREE) Fund. Half of the three-part donation ($25,000) was presented to the TREE Fund on October 31, 2012, during the ISA Annual Leadership Workshop.
This donation not only supports the TREE Fund but also is in line with the ISA strategic plan. Focusing on research and the dissemination of that research for healthier trees and more sustainable communities, ISA provided $25,000 in an unrestricted donation to be used as necessary to support the TREE Fund and the research it funds.
The remaining $25,000 of the donation will be directed toward two specific funds that support research in areas in which the ISA Board has identified a need and set strategic goals for the organization-Safety and Public Awareness. Each fund will receive $12,500 to support work in those areas.
