“Bonnie Appleton was an inspiring person to her students and to the industries that she worked with. Her research bridged many fields from horticulture and arboriculture to nursery and landscape management, landscape design and utility arboriculture. Bonnie was a frequent speaker at chapter and national ISA events and was also involved in the development of the ISA certification program. Her passing has been felt in the green industry across the US and internationally, we miss her passion and advocacy for horticulture and arboriculture education and research.
“To honor Bonnie, the legacy of her research, and her mentoring of many students; the Bonnie Appleton Memorial Fund was established at the TREE Fund. This national fund will be used to sponsor scholarships to help support undergraduate students continuing in her footsteps to benefit the green industry.” (Source: B. White, VDOF)
