Established in 2015, the Arboriculture Society of Michigan Foundation and Historical Society strives to promote the profession of Arboriculture and Urban Forestry through scholarship, financial support and historical preservation.

Our Goals

  • Promote the profession of arboriculture and urban forestry through professional engagement and collaboration with industry partners.
  • Preserve the history of arboriculture by restoring the Detroit, Belle Isle Sawmill and through Historical Society displays, presentations and live sawmill demonstrations.
  • Support the education and certification of future arborists through the D. J. Kurkowski Memorial Scholarship. Educational events, historical artifact displays, sawmill demonstrations and an archival library are being developed at our Detroit sawmill and Marlette, Michigan sites.
