volunteer of the season
Katie Arias, volunteer since 2011
"My name is Katie and I volunteer at Trees Matter because I love it so much! Having successful and thriving trees is one of the most pressing concerns in our city (and the world). Volunteering for an organization that arms citizens with the ability to properly care for their trees and help them successfully mature is an amazing thing. I am a Certified Arborist and a Master Gardener. I do enjoy using my knowledge to help other people learn how to properly care for trees and other plants. Healthier stronger trees means that less power and water is wasted, which in turn cycles through and means less environmental damage. Trees Matter holds a special place in my heart. This organization does so much good in the world. I feel an indescribable amount of joy and satisfaction when I get to volunteer at the shade tree events. And truly, there’s not a better group of people out there."
