Bartlett Tree Experts co-sponsored a symposium with the Chicago Botanic Gardens that we called 'Trees as a Legacy in Design and Development.' We had world class speakers including Peter Walker, the co-creator of the 9/11 National Memorial. Three out of our five speakers cited research they conducted that was made in part due to TREE Fund dollars! It was amazing to hear Dr. Michael Raupp, Dr. Kathy Wolf and Dr. Kelby Fite all mention the TREE Fund as contributing to their work. This is applied research at its best. When research projects such as these funded by the TREE Fund are centerpieces of conference talks I know our fundraising efforts are in the right direction. What made this even better was that the audience was NOT arborists. TREE Fund dollars were talking to landscape architects, architects, planners and government officials. There is not better advertisement for the TREE Fund than to hear applied research education allied professions to make the world a better place through trees.
