    WE LOve our sponsors!!

    With our sponsors and community partners, we have planted over 800,000 trees in Arizona. Our volunteer community is strong and includes people from ALL walks of life and all ages. Supporting ACTC is a direct level of connection to people who include: home owners, students, small business owners, big business CEOs, green-industry professionals, teachers, cowboys and cowgirls, miners, technology professionals, municipal employees… you get the idea – we ARE Arizona and the people who volunteer with us ARE ALSO Arizona. Supporting ACTC, supports them as they do the work to care for trees in our our state-wide communities.

    We also provide the continuing education to hundreds of professional tree workers and arborists in Arizona. These people purchase and use millions of dollars in tree-care equipment, supplies and gear. Arizona tree professionals appreciate the support of organizations they go to for the supplies they need to care for trees. We invite our supplier partners to participate in supporting education events for tree-care professionals.
