Endowment Funds

Preserve the Urban Canopy for Future Generations

TREE Fund’s Endowment was established to fund tree research and education in perpetuity. The architects of the endowment understood the importance of research and education in the long term to the advancement of the arboriculture and urban forestry professions.

Urban trees are the focus of our research, education, and scholarship funding. Your gift to TREE Fund’s Endowment ensures that our knowledge of how to care for our urban forests will keep pace with the evolving challenges faced by trees living in close proximity to people.

Your gift to our General Endowment Fund or one of the named funds below is a gift to future generations. Thank you!

*Funds with asterisks are issuing awards as of 2017.
