TreeUtah invites you to join us on the slopes, hosted by Alta Ski Area, to consider how trees help us live, work and play! We will start the morning with a fun pre-public skiing session to be followed by breakfast on mountain at Watson’s Shelter. Before spending the rest of the day skiing at your leisure, we will feature a provocative panel discussion with forestry and tree experts. What is the state of Utah’s forest? How do trees effect your business or personal life? What are some lessons learned from forest management in the ski industry?
All these questions will be discussed and more! Panel discussion will feature:
- Steve Munson – Lead Entomologist for the Forest Service Intermountain Region Forest Health Protection Office for the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
- Mike Kuhns – Utah State University Interim Department Head, Forester, and Professor of the Wildland Resources Department.
- Henry Hornberger – Ex Mountain Operations Manager for Brianhead Resort and current VP of Mountain Operations for Solitude Mountain Resort.
RSVP and invite others on Facebook, and buy tickets HERE.

Last Thursday TreeUtah’s staff, board members and volunteers joined Carrie Cottonwood at our office to say adieu to the 2013 tree planting season. We just want to express our sincere gratitude to all those who contribute to making TreeUtah successful and impactful in many ways. Our volunteers left with great prizes from Alta Ski Area, Snowbird, Patagonia, Sibu Beauty, Millcreek Gardens, Adventure Medical Kits , Anti-gravity Yoga at Imagination Place, The Write Image, The Salt Lake Film Society, Glaus French Pastry Shoppe, and Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation. We enjoyed light appetizers including donations from Beehive Cheese and treats from Real Foods Market, and topped it all of with the wooden apple press from Riley’s Farm Fresh! These companies have a passion for supporting their communities, and we are so fortunate to work with them all!
Throughout the year, TreeUtah is able to fulfill its mission through the tireless and selfless gift of time from our amazing volunteers. Without all of you willing to get dirty planting and caring for trees, educating our communities about trees, and even addressing and stuffing envelopes, TreeUtah could not possibly exist! THANK YOU!!!

Special thanks to our partner, the Salt Lake Culinary Center!
The TreeUtah team would like to thank the Voilé for their recent generous donation! We are thrilled that the local backcountry ski and splitboard company has continued its support of our mission. This donation will help TreeUtah continue with its many tree plantings, workshops, and environmental educational events that bring fun, learning, commradarie and of course the many benefits of trees to our communities around Utah!
Since 1980, Voilé has been and continues to manufacture 98% of their gear here in Salt Lake City, Utah USA. “Voilé is harvesting trees for our backcountry ski and splitboard production, so we are partnering with TreeUtah to give back and ensure that those trees are replanted,” says David Grisson, Voile Manufacturing.
Thank you so much to everyone who was involved with all our recent tree planting efforts! Please email your photos to Hannah Whitney at email@example.com, and check out our photos (don’t forget to ‘like’ TreeUtah and tag yourself!) on Facebook:

The TreeUtah team would like that thank XMission for donating all our web hosting services. XMission is a local company commitment to the local community. Throughout its history, XMission has worked with hundreds of Utah’s nonprofit organizations by providing it’s services at no cost.
During the hot summer months here at the TreeUtah office we start to miss our leafy friends who we and our dedicated volunteers put into the ground in the Spring! So whenever we can we stop by to say hello and see how the trees are doing. We just wanted to give you all an update that most of the trees are brilliantly green and gobbling up carbon dioxide! Trees can be stressed by many factors such as weather, chemicals in the environment, pests and more. As tree stewards we need to do our part to be sure we give the trees we plant a fighting chance!
No one really needs an excuse to get outside and enjoy the shade of a tree, right? We encourage you to be tree stewards too by visiting the site at which you planted and share your findings and photos with us on Facebook or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
