“Trees exhale for us so that we can inhale them to stay alive. Can we ever forget that? Let us love trees with every breath we take until we perish.”
― Munia Khan
From municipalities to homeowners, trees provide an important environmental impact such as savings on watering, heating, cooling and storm water run-off, not to mention helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
But trees are not just purposeful, they’re sentimental as well – immortalized in the hearts and minds of citizens in small towns and large cities across the country.
Arborjet shares SavATree’s philosophy of nurturing and protecting America’s trees, launching a campaign entitled, “Saving America’s Iconic Trees,” an initiative to help ensure the overall health and longevity of some of the country’s most beloved trees.
Arborjet, a long-standing and valued partner of SavATree, is a leader in trunk injection technology, delivering the most effective formulas and cutting-edge equipment for insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers.
“Arborjet is dedicated to helping communities maintain their forest canopy, treating more than one million trees since we started more than a decade ago,” says Russ Davis, President and COO of Arborjet. “This year we’re making a big push to find and preserve trees that are truly special, whether it’s for their age and size, their impact on the area around them or their historical importance. If we act now, we can ensure that future generations will be able to reap the benefits of these special trees.”
