      Last year’s Day was noted as the largest one-day volunteer event in the tree industry! There were 2,572 volunteers who donated their talents and services to the caring of trees at 77 veteran properties across the Country which translated to over $2.6 million in donated services. This year let’s help beat that record by getting out to participate.
