Arborists ensure the health and longevity of trees.

Simply put, arborists love trees and want to make sure they’re healthy and happy (kind of like a doctor for trees!). The work is physically demanding, but has so many benefits including, working outdoors, giving back to the community and the ability to determine how high you want to climb in your career!

2018 IAA Annual Conference

For the first time in conference history, Tuesday will be a full day of presentations! You can learn about urban forests and arboriculture, carbon cycling, growing trees near concrete, integrating trees into stormwater design and policy.

On Wednesday and Thursday, learn about managing rights of way for wildlife, urban forest microclimates, tree risk, master plans, drones, pests and disease, training pesky young trees, selecting trees for urban environments, safety, integrated vegetation management BMP’s, and much much more.

There will be a separate workshop focused on business and sales by Jeff Ling for those who wish to attend for an additional fee. This half-day interactive program will discuss business and legal strategies for improving your business in the tree care industry. Price includes lunch, printed materials, and 1/2 hour telephone consultation at no cost.

Over 30 CEU approved topics for ISA credentialed arborists with many opportunities to earn CCH’s for licensed applicators!

And, of course, there will be a special time to gather and have fun on Wednesday evening!
