Tomorrow is the big day! (except, where otherwise previously noted, of course!) We have 2,100 volunteers registered, making this one of the largest single events in the tree care industry, EVER! We cannot say enough in gratitude to the tree care professionals stepping up to make this happen. There has been every reason to skip this event in 2017 - not one, not two, but three hurricanes in the East, wildfires that are consuming historic acreages in the West - and yet, the overwhelming response we heard from arborists was, "No problem - we'll be there. Wouldn't miss it." Even in the midst of the busiest time tree care has ever seen, honoring our Vets and their families was still a priority. That speaks volumes to the character of arborists. We are very proud to be a part of that. Tomorrow we want everyone to have fun, be safe, and be reflective on the little part we all play in the big picture.
