Each April, MAA celebrates a state-wide volunteer day.  MAA's Arbor Day of Service gives tree care professionals a chance to make a direct impact in their local communities, drawing attention to the importance of proper tree care and tree planting.  Hundreds of arborists volunteer annually, working collaboratively or on independent projects at sites such as community parks, schools, town commons or conservation lands.  The tradition of giving continues on April 26, 2019.  Where will you lend a hand?

Arbor Day of Service is April 26, 2019!
There are so many ways to get involved! 

MAA will be joining Trustees of Reservations at Appleton Farms in Ipswich MA for a festive work day complete with local fare and friends.  Many of you will volunteer your services across the state.  Let us know your plans!


You won't want to miss this celebration of arboriculture!  The Trustees of Reservations is rolling out the red carpet for MAA members and volunteers. Fresh donuts and coffee will be served throughout the morning.  Enjoy a BBQ lunch complete with live music and soda trucks midday.  Our sponsors will provide displays and demonstrations.  You provide the professional tree care! It's going to be fantastic.  We can't wait to see you!

Prior to the event, volunteers will be assigned to a specific zone on the property. Details will be communicated about equipment needed and scope of work.  Independent arborists are encouraged to volunteer as well as larger tree companies.  There are jobs for crews with equipment and smaller horticultural tasks to be completed. 

Follow the link to volunteer. Please let us know how many of your team will be coming to help so we can order your t-shirts!  Just one MAA member needs to register the group.  There are too many details to describe here.  Visit the Appleton Farms Volunteer page for the schedule, the menu and all the exciting details!


Planning your own project?

If you are an arborist who is planning an ADOS project, please share your plans.  We love to hear about where people are working all around the state and how much work was accomplished.

Interesting in sponsoring?

Arbor Day sponsorship dollars defray the costs of signage and marketing this statewide event.  Your sponsorship of $500 includes logo recognition in all statewide publicity.  Funds are also distributed to support all MAA Safety programming throughout the year.

Volunteering for Arbor Day is not required, however, if any sponsors are interested in participating at the Appleton Farms event (either demonstrating their equipment at the worksite or setting up a display table) please contact Charissa Sharkey at MAA.
