The Connecticut Tree Protective Association has joined with the TREE Fund in an effort to establish the Doctor Mark S. McClure Research Fund. This research fund will be used to assist young researchers pursuing advanced academic degrees, whose work will be of benefit to those practicing arboriculture or urban forestry.
Once established, this research fund will be named in honor of former CTPA Board Member and Past President, Mark McClure, who was also chief scientist and administrator of the CT Agricultural Experiment Station’s Valley Lab, in Windsor, CT.
In order to establish this fund in Mark’s name, the CTPA and the TREE Fund raised $100,000. Once that dollar amount was reached, the research fund existed as a named fund within the TREE Fund, for the purpose identified by CTPA.
For further details, please see the Deed of Gift.
Additional donations are needed, and are encouraged.
