Utility Arborist Research Fund

The Utility Arborist Research Fund (UARF), established at the TREE Fund in 2010 by the Utility Arborist Association, supports research specific to utility arboriculture. The TREE Fund manages the endowment, and the UAA advises the UARF with respect to research priorities.

With seed money from Arizona Public Service Co. and gifts from Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Ameren, National Grid, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), Texas New Mexico Power, Edison Electric Institute and many others, as of March 2016, the fund stands at approximately $360,000.

Now PG&E is leading the charge to build the UARF to $1 million. In 2016 and 2017, for every $2 donation made to the UARF, PG&E will match $1, up to $125,000 per year. Your donation goes 50% farther with this generous match.

Please donate to the Utility Arborist Research Fund today!
