The History of ISA (International Society of Arboriculture)

Posted: by & filed under Uncategorized

Haven’t you always wondered how the tree care industry came about? If you love history like I do you’ll find their story fascinating!

Note: all information was copied from the ISA website to be sure no misinformation was shared.

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) has served the tree care industry for nearly 100 years as a scientific and educational organization.

ISA was founded in 1924 when members of the Connecticut Tree Protective Association convened a meeting that would plant the seed of the organization that would ultimately revolutionize the tree care industry. It was this gathering that was to become the first of many annual conferences of the organization that has evolved into today’s International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). The history of modern arboriculture is largely the story of the development of ISA in the 20th century. And while such a history is not exclusively that of ISA and its predecessor organizations, there is little of significance in arboriculture that is not reflected in its publications since its inception in 1924.

ISA continues to be a dynamic medium through which arborists around the world share their experience and knowledge for the benefit of society. ISA is aligned on many fronts with other green organizations and is working hard to foster a better understanding of trees and tree care through research and the education of professionals as well as global efforts to inform tree care consumers.
