The TREE Fund works to sustain the world’s urban forests by providing funding for scientific research, education programs, and scholarships related to arboriculture and urban forestry. Through the generous support of corporate and individual sponsors and donors our organization offers:
- Funding for scientific research into critical urban tree care issues
- Funding for arboriculture education programs
- Scholarships for aspiring arborists
TREE Fund scholarships help students who are interested in careers in arboriculture and urban forestry to pursue their dreams.
The Horace M. Thayer Scholarship Program provides financial support for university and college students through scholarships to foster a greater appreciation of shade trees and promote the science and practice of professional arboriculture in Pennsylvania and Delaware. The award is non-renewable, but can be applied for annually. All awards will be paid directly to the educational institution attended by the recipient in two equal payments.
The TREE Fund does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability or national or ethnic origin.
