Yale Cordage donates to Arborist Safety Training Institute

Yale Cordage announced a generous gift in the amount of $5,000 to the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI) today. To date, ASTI has raised over $2 million to fund its mission.

“We would like to thank Yale Cordage for supporting ASTI,” says Mark Garvin, president and CEO of the Tree Care Industry Association. “Their contribution will enhance safety training in the tree care industry by bringing it to the arborists who need it most.”

ASTI’s mission is to provide quality, local and affordable training opportunities for working arborists across the nation. Tree care practitioners may apply for an ASTI grant to subsidize training for advanced safety techniques and disciplines, including: chipper operator basics, felling, rigging, electric hazards, chain saw safety, aerial lift operation, aerial rescue, and more.

“Yale Cordage is honored to be part of the Arborist Safety Training Institute,” says Bill Putnam, president of Yale Cordage. “We have always worked within the industries we serve to help bring the safest products and systems to the market. The opportunity to reinforce this as a supporter of ASTI is a natural extension of the core values of the company.”
