Description

1) Objective

The Safe Arborist Techniques Fund (SATF) is a joint program of Tree Research and Education Endowment Fund (TREE Fund) and International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), established in 2015 to support research and development into the techniques and equipment that arborists use in climbing, rigging, and working on trees, and the means of identifying potential hazards, to provide a safer working environment. Grant-funded projects are expected to be completed within two years of initial fund disbursement.

2023 SATF grants must support useful inquiry into the areas of worker safety and/or biomechanics, to include investigation into tree failure mechanisms and causes, and offsetting practices and techniques to protect workers, residents and property. Sample topics (not all-inclusive) could include:

  • Decay assessment/spread;
  • Inoculating trees with root decay;
  • Response growth;
  • Mechanical pruning;
  • Lightning protection;
  • Support systems, cabling, etc.;
  • Machine-aided climbing;
  • Biomechanics;

2) Eligibility

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

3) Location

Actions can take place worldwide.

4) Budget

The maximum award value of SATF grants is $15,000.

5) Application

The first step to apply for this grant is to 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 between August 1, 2023 and September 15, 2023. 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 Safe Arborist Techniques Fund Grant program to have a reasonable possibility of success given the 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. Your completed application will only be accepted and reviewed between August 1 to October 1, 2023.
