Join us to learn more about future updates to the standard and how you can participate.

This workshop will review how A300 standards are used for:

  1. Writing specifications for all aspects of tree work
  2. Development of training materials for employees and volunteers involved with tree care
  3. Assure a clear understanding of proper tree care for regulators, governments, and legal authorities.
  4. Proper care and maintenance of trees, from planting onward, will assure long-term health and minimize interference with infrastructure.
