PLANET To Donate Services To Historic Cemeteries
The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) recently announced that plans are well under way for the upcoming Renewal & Remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery and Historic Congressional Cemetery on Monday, July 16, 2007, from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Hundreds of landscape and lawn care specialists from across the country will bring their crews to Arlington National and Historic Congressional cemeteries to spend the day mulching, caring for and cabling trees with lightening protection, pruning, liming, planting and aerating as well as installing an irrigation system at Arlington National Cemetery. This gift is valued at more than $250,000 in services and work.
“This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our professional skills and care for two important American monuments,” stated Tom Shotzbarger, a PLANET member and chairman of the event.
On Tuesday, July 17, 2007, PLANET and Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) members will visit congressional leaders on Capitol Hill and speak with them about issues facing the green industry, including comprehensive immigration reform. This Legislative Day on the Hill event is held by PLANET and TCIA.
