Advancement of Arboriculture
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Phil Murphy's "Stay at Home" Executive Order, the CAA Spring Arboriculture Training classes were postponed. We do not have a date for rescheduling this class but we are still planning to hold our Fall Arboriculture training classes. The location for the Fall classes has not been determined and will be posted as soon as we have that information.
The Committee for the Advancement of Arboriculture urges all of our tree care workers to work safely regarding regular tree care operations and COVID-19 precautions.
Seeing the need for education, continued safety training and the importance for more professionalism in the tree care industry, the CAA was established in 1990.
The objective is to promote excellence in the field of arboriculture through continued educational seminars and skills training programs.
The benefits include higher quality personnel to the tree care industry, the environment and the public in general.
