welcome to our first quarterly newsletter

Happy Arbor Day and welcome to ArbNet’s first quarterly newsletter! We are celebrating our five year anniversary today! To recognize this milestone we are offering a new capacity building grant to our members. All arboreta that are accredited through the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program as of Sept. 1, 2016 are eligible (there's still time to get your arboretum accredited before the closing date!). We have an updated accreditation application and we invite our accredited arboreta to pursue an upgrade to a higher level this year. We are also offering accredited arboreta a free ArbNet 5th anniversary tree label. Request one today  to commemorate one of your trees to celebrate your accreditation and five years of ArbNet. We will be planting several trees at The Morton Arboretum to celebrate Arbor Day and ArbNet's 5th anniversary. We hope you will plant a tree for Arbor Day too!
