For The Public

PUBLIC OUTREACH & ISAO. 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. One way we strive to accomplish this goal is by assisting homeowners and other tree owners about the need for professional care to grow and sustain healthy trees. To assist in this effort, ISA International has developed a public education website to provide tree care information.

WHAT IS AN ARBORIST & WHY HIRE ONE? By definition, an arborist is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

FIND AN ARBORIST NEAR YOU. To help consumers locate professional, qualified tree care service providers in their communities, ISAO provides a list of members organized into geographical areas. Note that members sign up to be on these lists; they do not represent all qualified arborists in a region.

ONLINE & DOWNLOADABLE RESOURCES. This link is still in development but check it out as we provide a long list of over 100 industry organizations, government agencies, educational and other links of interest. If you have any to add, please forward them to Rebecca Lord.  We'd like to make the list as comprehensive as possible. Visit this link...
