Lueders Environmental McSweeney & Ricci Insurance Agency Olde Colonial Tree & Landscape Thank You, Arbor Day Volunteers! Harrison McPhee & Bartlett Tree Experts worked at Elm Bank Reservation. MAA members showed enthusiasm, commitment, and talent on 2016’s annual Arbor Day of Service. More than 40 unique projects took place around the state. Members did tree work in playgrounds, parks, and cemeteries, while others ran educational programs at elementary schools and community gardens. Hundreds of MAA members participated – as individuals, small groups, and whole companies. It is estimated that more than $250,000 of services were donated on this fantastic day – amazing! Heartfelt thanks to the 2016 Arbor Day of Service sponsors. Their generous support offsets costs associated with promoting ADoS (signage, materials, photography), while also supporting MAA’s safety initiatives. The day could not be as successful without them!
