ANSI A300 National Tree Care Standards

Using ANSI A300 National Tree Care Standards to Assure Good Tree Care

Sharpen your knowledge and skills about the proper care and maintenance of trees — from planting onward — by attending an upcoming workshop presented by the Tree Care Industry Association in cooperation with the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture. Landscape architects are encouraged to attend.

Gaining competency in applying the National Tree Care Standards will help us reach our goals of assuring long-term tree health and good structure, maximizing the benefits provided by urban forests while reducing risk, and minimizing interference with infrastructure.

The ANSI A300 National Tree Care Standards workshop will address:

  • Writing specifications for all aspects of tree work from pruning, fertilizing and soil management, cabling and bracing, construction management, planting and transplanting, utility vegetation management, and risk assessment,
  • Developing training materials for employees and volunteers involved with tree care, and
  • Assuring a clear understanding of proper tree care for regulators, governments, and legal authorities.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 12 from 8:30 am to noon

WHERE: The DoubleTree by Hilton in Sacramento

COST: $15, includes a standards booklet
