Co-founder of the Champion Tree Project, David Milarch works to propagate and preserve the genetic heritage of the world's last old growth forest giants and save our arboricultural legacy. His work has been covered by The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Forbes, National Geographic, Smithsonian, The Today Show, Good Morning America, All Things Considered, and numerous other major media.
A fourth generation nurseryman with four decades experience in supplying landscape trees for the national market, Milarch seeks to revitalize stressed urban and watershed forests with selected, robust strains. He has propagated more than 90 species, including the tallest redwoods and the oldest bristlecone pines. His plantings grace campuses, botanical gardens, and public spaces from coast to coast, from the U.S. Capitol grounds to the Ford Motor Company headquarters to the Olympics venues in Salt Lake City.
Milarch holds the Garden Clubs of America Distinguished Service Award, the National Conservation Medal from the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Grant Thornton Leader and Innovator award from Lawrence Technological University.
Milarch speaks on forestry and trees, underlining the role of sustainable forests, buttressed by the preservation and propagation of key genetic strains, in protecting our natural environment.
