Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and international investigators and institutions for research on tree management in highly populated areas. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to being invited to apply. Consideration will be given to research that is new and innovative. For 2021, the Duling program will focus on Risk Assessment and mitigation including all aspects of decay detection, hazard tree assessment and related matters where human safety, including worker safety, are concerned.

The goal of this program is to provide start-up or seed funding to support innovative research and technology transfer projects that have the potential of benefiting the everyday work of arborists. John Z. Duling Grants may be used to support exploratory work in the early stages of untested, but potentially transformative, research ideas and approaches. Examples may include application of new approaches to research questions, or application of new expertise involving novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.

For 2022, the Duling program will focus on Propagation, Plant Selection, Development of New Varieties, and Planting/Establishment.  In 2023, the emphasis will be on Arboriculture Theory and Practice.

Prospective applicants can be sure that reviewers will place highest emphasis on:

  • Prior record of accomplishment by the investigative team.  (Scientists early in their research careers may wish to include others with more research experience as active co-investigators or advisors)
  • Potential contribution of the project to the arboricultural industry.
  • Approach, including statement of hypotheses and experimental design
  • Dissemination plan to the scientific community and to tree care professionals
