Stihl Inc., a member of the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), the national trade association for landscape and lawn care industry professionals, participated in Renewal & Remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery, July 28, 2014. Every July, hundreds of landscape and lawn care professionals from across the nation bring their crews to Arlington National Cemetery to spend the day mulching, upgrading sprinklers, cabling and installing lightning protection for trees, pruning, planting, liming, and aerating the soil. The day began at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony featuring a joint color guard and speaker presentations to dedicate the day of work and helping to maintain these hallowed grounds.
“We are honored to join with other landscape industry professionals from around the country to care for the historic grounds at Arlington National Cemetery. It is a way for us to pay tribute to the men, women and families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country,” said Roger Phelps, promotional communications manager at STIHL Inc.
