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.

Arbor Day of Service Returns on April 30, 2021

MAA's Group Celebration Plans Underway

Mark your calendar now and watch for details about the MAA’s Arbor Day of Service celebration on Friday, April 30, 2021.  MAA’s popular community service event will be held at the historic Ames Estate and Community Park in Easton, MA.

First settled by Oliver Ames, 35th Governor of the Commonwealth, this 36-acre bucolic estate is now a well-loved green space regularly enjoyed by community members under the stewardship of The Trustees. The property has a significant number of full-growth specimen trees that reflect the ongoing commitment of the Ames family members to arboriculture. Dramatic examples include Kentucky coffee tree, magnolia, cucumber magnolia, Stewartia, beeches, sweet gum and columnar maple. 

“We are looking forward to making a difference at the historic Ames Estate next April,” said Neal Reilly, MCA, Arbor Day Committee co-chair.  “The property offers an excellent opportunity for MAA members to get together and demonstration veteran tree preservation including pruning and plant health care.”

Details on how you can be involved in this group project are coming soon!

Community sites in need

In 2021, we are collecting requests from the community for assistance on Arbor Day.  If you're able to lend a hand, arborists are encouraged to reach out to sites in need and, if possible, find ways to help safely at these locations!
