Just before the ribbon-cutting ceremony at TCI EXPO ’22 in Charlotte, TCIA held a signing ceremony to officially recognize the start of a two-year alliance with the North Carolina Department of Labor Division Occupational Safety and Health (NCOSHA). This collaboration will empower and strengthen the industry through mutual interests in bolstering workplace safety and health.

Congresswoman Alma Adams from the 12th District of North Carolina also met with TCIA members operating in District 12 in North Carolina and across the nation to discuss safe working practices efforts by our industry to preserve trees in our communities. She participated in discussions about the development of an industry separate Federal OSHA standard that would promote industry-accepted safe workplace practices.

TCIA was glad to connect its members with Representative Adams to discuss business
operations and safety priorities in the industry. Representatives from The Davey Tree Expert Company, Bartlett Tree Experts, Asplundh Tree Expert Company, Hoppe Tree Service, Heartwood Tree Service and Adaptable Aerial Solutions LLC had the opportunity to meet with Representative Adams.
