TCIA-member company Vine & Branch recently hosted a Future Farmers of America (FFA) Career Success Tour in partnership with Vermeer, a TCIA CROWN PACT partner and also a TCIA member. This event was a mini field day that featured a skid steer and stump grinder, a John Deere loader from Reynolds Farm Equipment, as well as a variety of Vine & Branch trucks and equipment.
The local FFA chapter sent 50 students for the tour where they observed safety demonstrations, practiced wood identification, took a tour of the Vine & Branch facility and wood shop, and participated in a discussion on electrical-line safety.
Wright Tree Service donated a backpack which was filled with items from Indianapolis Power and Light, Duke Energy, Townsend Tree Service, Bartlett Tree Experts, Purdue Forestry, Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association, TCIA, ISA, Advanced Turf Solutions and course Vine & Branch.
Thanks to all companies involved for representing the tree care industry, and for making this day a success for the FFA students!
