Saluting Branches

The 2nd Annual Saluting Branches Day of Service was held on September 21, 2016. Over 1,400 volunteers from more than 300 companies put in an estimated 11,200 hours in one day. More than $1.4 million dollars in arboriculture services donated by arborists doing the work they love!

During the August 2016 ISA Tradeshow in Texas, Brian Tunge of ArborMAX took the time to visit with Greg Krogstad, President of Rainbow Treecare, and learn about Saluting Branches.

Their actions speak volumes about our industry and the overall culture of the people we serve every day in the tree care industry.

Here at ArborMAX, we are committed to joining the efforts in 2017 and encourage you to do the same. To learn more, visit www.salutingbranches.org.
