SERVING THE COMMUNITIES WHERE WE WORK AND LIVE
Every year, ACRT Services consistently gives back to our industry and the communities we’re working in. We’re frequently involved with sponsoring events or initiatives as an organization, and we’re always encouraging our employees to get involved with a local project or organization. Here just a few of the ways ACRT Services and our employees are giving back.
SUPPORTING THE TREE FUND
ACRT Services is a platinum-level donor to the Tree Research & Education Endowment (TREE) Fund — a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting scientific discovery and dissemination of new knowledge in the fields of arboriculture (the science of cultivating and managing trees in a landscape) and urban forestry.
PARTICIPATING IN THE TOUR DES TREES
Our employees often participate in the annual Tour des Trees cycling event, which supports the TREE Fund by raising money for scientific research and education programs related to arboriculture and urban forestry.
GETTING INVOLVED IN THE UAA
All ACRT and ACRT Pacific employees receive complimentary memberships in the Utility Arborist Association (UAA) — an organization where utility arborists employed by electric utilities can network and share information. Many of our employees also serve on various committees.
GETTING INVOLVED IN THE ISA
ACRT and ACRT Pacific employees qualify for free credentialing in the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), which promotes the professional practice of arboriculture and fosters a greater worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees. Our team members frequently support or participate the ISA as well.
