RIDGEVILLE, South Carolina , June 11, 2013 (press release) – ArborGen, a world leader in the development and commercialization of technologies that improve the productivity of trees, announced today that it has been recognized by the Forest Landowners Association (FLA) as its Corporate Member of the Year. The FLA Awards Program honors outstanding landowners and forestry professionals contributing to the advancement of the private forest landowner community.

“We are pleased to name ArborGen as this year’s Corporate Member of the Year in recognition of the significant contributions the company and its employees have made to the FLA,” said Scott P. Jones, CEO of Forest Landowners Association. “In addition to its work with our Association, this award underscores the positive impact that ArborGen has made on our members through their outstanding operations and seedling products that enhance and support the needs of private landowners.”

FLA Corporate Members are affiliated companies who are not necessarily landowners, but closely aligned to private forest landowner interests. The investment made at the corporate level helps support and enhance landowner member programs and enables the FLA to be more effective advocates for private landowners.

“We are proud to be recognized by the FLA for our corporate contributions to the Association and its membership,” said John Pait, vice president of sales, marketing and product development of ArborGen. “With more than 50 years of tree improvement research and combined expertise in forestry, we are developing products that are creating opportunities for timberland owners and managers. We look forward to our continued work with the FLA and helping to further advance the private forest landowner community.”

ArborGen accepted the award at a ceremony during the FLA’s National Conference in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho on Friday, June 7. The National Conference of Private Forest Landowners is the only venue that brings together private forest landowners to interact, learn and exchange knowledge on issues impacting forest landowners with leaders from the private, NGO, federal and state sectors.
