Plants in Power is a Garden Society that promotes the love of gardening, conservation, civic service and environmental responsibility. The membership has the opportunity to advance the goals of conservation, restoration and planting trees in diverse locations both urban and rural since we are a virtual society. As director, I have the advantage of working with stakeholders in Newhalem and the opportunity to plant trees and conserve veteran stands in an 8 mile area.
PIP pledges to continue the education and promotion of tree conservation and planting through our member activities, educational blogs, exchange of ideas through social media and professional efforts in stewardship, conservation, and maintenance.
Many of our members are working in positions of responsibility within Environmental, Arboriculture, and Horticulture departments for private and municipal entities with duties that include: tree service, conservation, planting, IPM, and vegetation management. Other members of the society are interested in sustainable practices for personal property management.
We support educational programing through our website, posts and social media and are hopeful that the future will clear allow for developing event and interpretive programs, face-to-face, with our members and other interested followers.
Continued education and implementation of ISA Best Practices for selection and installation of trees.
Adapting a mindset of environmental stewardship through continued education, participation with stakeholder and partner programs offered through educational and activity events.
Continued professional standards that reflect the values and ethics of conservation, preservation, appropriate maintenance to enhance ecosystem benefits and wildlife preservation.
