Fast growing trees with wide spreading root systems should never be planted too near your home. Roots can cause damage to your homes foundation and possibly your roof too.
In 1986 the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA) Metropolitan Milwaukee Chapter was named as a beneficiary in the estate of the late Ronald J. Klokner, a past-president and charter member of the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association. The bequest was made with the expressed intent to establish a scholarship fund for students actively pursuing a career in the landscape industry.
The goal of this scholarship fund is to support students who have demonstrated a successful track record of academic achievement in landscape or horticultural related studies.
Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
Applicants should be:
- A Wisconsin resident who intends to live and work in the State of Wisconsin after graduation.
- A full-time student attending a college or technical school.
- Enrolled in an accredited four-year degree program or two-year certificate program in horticulture or a landscape related area.
In addition, an applicant must have successfully completed at least one semester in a two year academic program or one year in a four year academic program. Scholarships are awarded in the amount of $250.00 to $2,000.00 and are paid directly to the college or technical school the recipient is attending for the student's tuition and fees.
