Saving the iconic trees of America

“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

Greenhouses and nurseries play an essential role in the development of plants, trees and shrubs for homeowners, businesses and communities across the nation.

They provide nourishing soil for a seed to explode into new plant life.

Water to fill hundreds of thousands of cells with cooling hydration.

And an ideal growing environment to build endurance for the harsh elements of nature.

But once the plants, trees and shrubs you’ve painstakingly cared for leave your facility, you rarely stop to think about what kind of life they’ve had.

For annuals, their life is intended to be short – providing beauty and pollination to the world for one growing season. But for many hearty trees and shrubs, did you ever wonder how the fruits of your labor have fared out in the world?

For some, they’ve become truly “iconic” – immortalized in the hearts and minds of citizens in small towns and large cities across the country.

Arborjet is a leader in trunk injection technology for trees. They recently launched a campaign entitled, Saving America’s Iconic Treesan initiative to help ensure the overall health and longevity of some of the country’s most beloved specimens.

Russ Davis, President and COO of Arborjet, says, “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.”

Beneficiaries of this year’s Saving America’s Iconic Trees campaign include:

While you might not always know what happens to the fruits of your labor once they leave your facility, one day some might just be categorized as “iconic”. Keep up the good work!
