Happy National Non-Profit Day!

Today, TCIA would like to highlight our own non-profit – ...the TCIA Foundation. TCIA established our foundation to support the well-being of the industry and advance tree care businesses in 2006. At its core, TCIAF is dedicated to funding education and professional development in the tree care industry.

One of the key ways TCIAF accomplishes this goal is through the Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI). ASTI gives grants for companies in the industry to hold free safety workshops. Thousands have been trained through this program since its inception, but there is much more work to be done.

Interested in learning more about how TCIAF supports the industry with free education? Reach out to Aiden O’Brien, Director of the TCIA Foundation at aobrien@tcia.org.
