Description

1) Objective

stablished in 1995 to honor one of the leaders in the arboriculture industry and a founder of the ISA Research Trust, the Hyland R. Johns Grant Program funds longer term research and technology transfer projects that have the potential of benefiting the everyday work of arborists. In 2024, TREE Fund’s Hyland Johns Grant program will be focused specifically on the following areas:

  • Urban forest management to include:
    • Inventory techniques, assessment, interpretation, etc.
    • Pruning, removal, relocation, etc.
    • Surveys to inform decision making (Tree surveys will be considered if they address a research question, inform decision making, or otherwise have applicability that can be generalized beyond the tree population being measured
  • Ecosystem Services to include:
    • Interactions with other biota (birds, pollinators, nuisance plants/animals, etc)
    • Impact of weather events (storm water runoff, increased temperature, wind tolerance, etc.)
  • Tree health to include:
    • Identification and management of insects, diseases, viruses, phytoplasmas, and other biotic agents that are known or suspected of affecting tree health
    • Inadvertent impact of chemicals used for other purposes (e.g. herbicides, deicing salt, airborne pollutants) on urban tree health
    • Role of environment on predisposition of trees to other biotic agents.
  • Decay to include:
    • Identification, assessment, and mitigation of biotic organisms that cause decay in trees.
    • New and/or improved means to determine the presence in trees or to determine their threat to structural integrity

2) Eligibility

Organisations are eligible to apply. No grants are given to individuals.

3) Location

Actions can take place worldwide.

4) Budget

Projects are expected to be completed within three to five years, with a maximum award value of $25,000. No project may receive more than one award from this program.

5) Application

TREE Fund will accept completed applications only between August 1 and October 1, 2024. To apply, send an email containing a brief Letter of Inquiry (LOI) of no more than 100 words describing your project title and concept to treefund(a)treefund.org before September 15, 2024. Your LOI must clearly identify the Principal Investigator and Institution who will be contracted for the work should your application be approved. Also note in your LOI that you wish to apply for the Hyland R. Johns Grant program. TREE Fund will evaluate whether your LOI concept meets all of our application criteria and is deemed to have a reasonable possibility of success given this year’s research priorities. If and only if your LOI is approved, TREE Fund will send you a numbered application form for your use. You may not apply without such a numbered application form, and the number of applications so provided each grant making cycle may be limited. TREE Fund determinations on whether an LOI meets the application criteria are final and not negotiable.
