The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) provides research, technology, and education to promote the respectable work of arboriculture and develops a greater global awareness of how trees benefit their surroundings. They provide training for professionals to be “ISA Certified Arborists“.
The City of Austin Parks and Recreation promotes healthy urban forestry tree care through using appropriate tree maintenance steps to improve the general health of your trees, in addition to increasing their lifespans and giving you more benefits over an even longer period of time.
The City of Austin runs many programs to help the public gain awareness and practical advice about the health and well-being of trees. For a quick sampling, the City of Austin tree programs includes The City Arborist Program, The Tree of the Year Award, City of Austin Green Garden, and The Oak Wilt Suppression Program just to mention a few!
The International Society of Arboriculture has also put together a fun gathering place at Facebook, for those who would prefer to interact more personally with The International Society of Arboriculture as well as other similar minded individuals through social media discussions.
