2006 - Nonprofit Organization Award - Education & Promotion - The Tree Bank Foundation, OKC

Nonprofit Organization Award (annual less more than $100,000) for Education & Promotion - The Tree Bank Foundation, Oklahoma City

Coordinated by The Tree Bank Foundation in Oklahoma City, and funded through a host of partners, “Standing Tall – Storm Damage & Your Tree” is not only a straightforward, helpful guidebook, it also is an information-rich website created by Cross Timbers Forestry.

The guidebook and website help homeowners assess their storm-damaged trees, learn how to decide if professional help is needed, and who to contact for more help.  Previously, this collection of information had not been available.

One of our judges noted that although the examples of storm damage to trees are from Oklahoma, the guidebook and website are wonderful resources for people in every state.  “I’m impressed with the clear and direct approach taken by creators and the widespread accessibility of the information,” said another.

For your excellence in providing such helpful information, and for inspiring people everywhere to replant after damaging storms, Tree Bank Foundation, tonight we salute you!
