Make the Future a Healthy One for Trees

Trees provide important benefits to humans and to society. They improve air quality, reduce energy use, have great economic value, and beautify the surroundings.

However, trees face multiple, complex threats—from invasive disease and pests to global warming. These challenges are best solved when scientists work together.

Help establish the Center for Tree Science, a new initiative that is bringing together scientists from around the world to study and learn about trees. These tree experts are learning more each day about the challenges facing trees, as well as what can be done to protect them.

Ensure there will be a future generation of researchers equipped to deal with these challenges.

Governments and universities are cutting research budgets for many programs, including horticulture and tree research. The Center for Tree Science provides research, training, and internship opportunities for professionals and promising students, helping to fill the gap.
