Arbor Day of Service

Arbor Day of Service | April 25, 2014 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

The Massachusetts Arborists Association (MAA) held its annual Arbor Day of Service on April 25, 2014. More than 500 professional arborists mobilized and donated nearly $300,000 in services such as tree planting, safety pruning and hazard tree removal to communities in need throughout Massachusetts. A total of 49 large and smaller scale projects took place at schools, parks, town commons, libraries, cemeteries and community centers across the state. Thank you, volunteers and organizers, for your extraordinary efforts!
