I recently left a successful career at a Fortune 300 company to assume the role of CEO of Tree Trust. I made the decision because I wanted to make a more direct contribution to my community. What I have found, however, is that I am receiving much more in return. The people and programs of Tree Trust - and our impact in the greater Twin Cities area - are amazing. Whether it's summer youth conservation programs, young adult year-round programs or community tree plantings, all make a positive difference to many lives here in Minnesota!

Each of our programs leaves a tangible legacy for our participants and our communities. We share our knowledge of trees, conservation, erosion-control, etc. to improve public spaces across the Twin Cities.
