Barborinas Fund

For Jim Barborinas, a  TREE Fund trustee, and his wife, Annie, a commitment to building the endowment will create a steady source of research funds focused on tree planting, roots and the improvement of tree varieties for nurseries. The Barborinas Fund will support an aspect of arboriculture that is near and dear to them.“The only thing that makes us experts in the field that we are in is the application of methods or techniques that are proven by unbiased third parties,” says Jim. “I feel that TREE Fund research grants are the best way to make all of us real experts.”

Please make a gift to the Barborinas fund.

Congrats & thanks
