|Mass Hort Celebrates Arbor Day as Host for the Massachusetts Arborists Association (MAA)|
Each year the Massachusetts Arborists Association (MAA) celebrates Arbor Day with service projects throughout the Commonwealth. This year 26 arborists spent the day at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society pruning shrubs and trees for safety and ornamental purposes. Volunteers included tree professionals from Cedar Lawn Tree; Cleaves Company, Inc; Bartlett Tree Experts; Lueders Tree and Landscape; Maltby & Co. Inc; and Stoner Trees & Shrubs.
Crews arrived at 7:30 a.m. and stopped only for a short coffee break and lunch. In a single day, they felled and chipped dead trees, trimmed and re-shaped ornamentals, and cleared unwanted interlopers across Mass Hort’s 36 acres.
Earlier this spring, Bartlett Tree Experts spent a week pruning the beech hedge enclosing the Italianate garden at the Manor House. This dramatic burgundy colored hedge is a highlight of the formal landscape at Elm Bank, surrounding an Italianate garden designed by the Olmsted Brothers.
The Massachusetts Arborists Association and the Massachusetts Certified Arborists (MCA) program are the cornerstones of the state's professional tree care industry. Through education, awareness and advocacy, their members are building stronger businesses, training more qualified arborists, and creating a lasting arboriculture industry.
