Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund)

Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund) is 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. Since our inception in 2002, TREE Fund has awarded over $3.3 million in funding to support:
  • Scientific research on urban tree care issues
  • Education programs related to trees
  • Scholarships for students aspiring to be tree care professionals

Knowledge gained from TREE Fund research directly impacts tree care practices, arborists’ techniques and people’s lives every day. Our work is made possible by the generous support of corporate, small business and community organization partners, as well as individual donors.

Since 2002, TREE Fund has awarded over $3.0 million in research grants to empower tree care professionals, their customers, and the communities in which they live and work. All 2018 active research grant programs are listed below. Before applying for any research grant, carefully read the guidelines provided in the “Read More” links below.

Sponsored Grant Programs
Organizations or individuals may directly fund research projects that are administered by TREE Fund, which will charge a 7.5% service fee to be paid by the sponsor(s). These projects must be compatible with TREE Fund’s mission, must be designed and documented with rigorous scientific protocols, and must not serve to promote proprietary products or services. The sponsor(s) may request an open, competitive award process, or may direct their grant award to a specific, qualified researcher. Full funding (including the administrative fee) for sponsored grants must be provided to TREE Fund prior to solicitation of any proposals or award of any contracts. Should a Sponsored Grant become available for application in 2018, a specific grant description will be added to the list above. Researchers applying for sponsored grants, either through open call or direct non-competitive award, must adhere to the following financial policies:
  • TREE Fund requires a match of least 10% cash or in-kind support from other sources; applicant should be prepared to identify such sources;
  • TREE Fund caps institutional overhead costs in its grant awards at 10% of the total TREE Fund-funded amount of the project; unrecovered institutional overhead costs above this cap may be counted toward the required grant match.
