In April, Iowa Arborist Association was honored with an award from Governor Terry E. Branstad for volunteer work done at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery.
The IAA conducted their Annual Day of Service at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery in Novemeber 2015. Our group worked hard and the staff there were extremely appreciative. The Govenor's Award is on display at the Iowa Arboretum in Madrid, Iowa.
As an organization, we can be proud of the job we did in giving back to our Service men and women who gave so much to us. Thank you to all who participated in that event. This is a prime example that the volunteer work we do does not go unnoticed and is definitely appreciated.
Jim Flott of Community Forestry Consultants in Spokane, Washington has researched the issue extensively and come up with solutions!
He will discuss these solutions at a workshop on
June 29th in Davenport, Iowa.
The morning session will be indoors and the afternoon session will be held outdoors for a “hands-on” experience. Trees will be inspected, corrected and planted in the park across the street.
The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) will be presenting an Electrical Hazards Awareness Program Workshop on October 21, 2016 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
