BUGG TREE CARE has been doing volunteer tree care and activities in the community since we opened shop in 2016. Because of this, we’d like to share some of these fun stories. We give our arborists one paid day per year to volunteer at an organization of their choice. In doing so, they can share their love of climbing and caring for trees with parts of the community we’re proud to be a part of. Some of the different things they’ve done are: 1) pruning the honey locust tree that hangs over the lions’ habitat at Henry Vilas Zoo, 2) join the Wisconsin Arborist Association for Dream Night, and 3) donate natural play areas for children to enjoy.

VOLUNTEERING TO PRUNE TREES AT HENRY VILAS ZOO

BUGG TREE CARE joins a volunteer crew of area arborists in service of the trees at Henry Vilas Zoo. This is a regular pruning of the honey locust tree that hangs over the lions’ habitat. When this event occurs, Zookeepers smartly house the lions elsewhere. The arborists, as much as they love the lions, are grateful to work at a distance. And the lions are always happy to have a professionally pruned tree over their home! Pruning the honey locust tree is a great tree care event that enhances the experience for everyone that visits to zoo!

LIFTING CHILDREN & SMILES INTO TREES ON DREAM NIGHT

BUGG TREE CARE has joined other Wisconsin Arborist Association members for the annual Dream Night. This is a regular event for Midwest families that have a child (or children) with serious health issues, to experience the thrill of being taken up into a tree. It is a very busy night, with nearly 800 in attendance, and happiness is always on full display. The children get excited about the special harnessing and rigging they get use to safely ascend into the trees. It’s never hard to find a smile at Dream Night!

NATURAL PLAY AREAS MADE OF UP-CYCLED TREES FOR KIDS

BUGG TREE CARE helps to support nature based play for kids of all ages. We do this by donating and delivering up-cycled wood materials to a number of play areas in the greater area of Madison, Wisconsin. Nature based play initiatives encourage creative play and interaction with the natural world. By simply organizing pieces of wood in different arrangements, children can use their imaginations to have some fun. These play areas can be seen in public parks, schools, or even your own backyard!
