ANNUAL EVENTS & SEMINARS/WORKSHOPS
OCAA seminars guide attendees to success within Commercial Arboriculture by providing practical information that can be used on a daily basis.  Our sessions also provide CEUs for certified arborists and tree workers. Seminars are by advance registration only and often sell out, so sign up early to avoid disappointment.  Visit our website for more details:  www.OntarioOCAA.com 

OCAA Day of Service
Every spring we offer a full day of free services to an organization in need of tree work (non-profits, places of worship, etc.). Members come out in full force from around the province to donate time, skills and equipment. Click here for details of each years' events...

Our mission is to enhance and promote the care and benefit of trees for present and future generations in Ontario through education, research and awareness.
