The mission of the Select SustainablePlus Tree Trust is to create significant long- term positive impact in the urban environment with sustainable trees. For more than 20 years, Select Trees, the leading grower of sustainable trees in the southeastern United States has been donating and discounting trees to projects and organizations based on need, potential for positive environmental impact, and education. In 2007, the Select SustainablePlus Tree Trust was formed in order to grow and better facilitate sizable donations of sustainable trees to projects that otherwise would not be likely to plant trees of the size, quality or caliber of Select SustainablePlus Trees. SSTT is best able to help when existing tree budgets are in place to purchase, plant, and care for trees.
Communicating the value of sustainable trees.
Education is a key component of the SSTT mission. The Select SustainablePlus Tree Trust aims to communicate the value of sustainable trees to consumers and industry professionals, creating a better understanding of how to utilize trees that will thrive in tough urban conditions and survive longer than any other landscape specimen.
Advancing the industry.
The Select SustainablePlus Tree Trust strives to continually improve the landscape industry. Through discounts and donations of Select SustainablePlus Shade Trees, SSTT works to improve the relationships and increase synergy among
- Project owners and developers
- Architects and engineers
- Landscape architects
- Public officials
- General contractors
- Landscape contractors
- Maintenance and tree care contractors
Within the industry, the definition and value of sustainable trees can sometimes be overlooked or undervalued as budgets and schedules tighten. SSTT is committed to increasing the understanding among all parties in the industry to advance the viability and practice of planting sustainable trees.
