Webster defines Association as "an organization of people for the common cause." The MAA is just that, an organization whose goal is furthering the ability and prosperity of companies like yours.

Since the early 1930s, the MAA has supported the business growth of Massachusetts tree care professionals with its comprehensive certification program, educational training, and industry support. We can accomplish together that which would be impossible individually:

  • Elevating professionalism and awareness: With more than 600 certified arborists in the state, the Massachusetts Certified Arborists program has increased consumer awareness as to the importance of working with qualified tree care professionals.

  • Encouraging networking and education: Sponsored by the MAA and allied green industry associations, the annual New England Grows exposition and conference is one of the largest green industry events in the nation.

  • Protecting your business: As a founding member of the Green Industry Alliance, members of the MAA have an effective voice on Beacon Hill and in the state regulatory arenas.

  • Building better tree care professionals: The MAA offers a variety of special seminars, dinner meetings, and safety training programs designed to equip tree care professionals with cutting edge arboriculture information.

  • Improving safety: The MAA offers cost effective programs to help employers with safety training and regulatory compliance in areas such as Electrical Hazard Awareness, Equipment Operation and Safe Pesticide Handling.

  • Creating public awareness: The MAA supports its members and the arboriculture community through innovative public awareness projects including marketing support for members, consumer advertising campaigns, annual Arbor Day celebrations, and outreach programs.

  • Providing industry information: Through its quarterly newsletter, the MAA keeps its members informed and competitive with the latest in arboriculture research, regulatory issues and business practices. Our close alliance with the University of Massachusetts affords our members state of the art diagnostic capabilities and resources.

  • Building qualified employees: The MAA has initiated a number of effective programs designed to create interest in and attract qualified labor to the tree care industry, including our scholarship programs, support of vocational schools, and participation in the School to Career program for agriculture.

  • Building a lasting legacy: The MAA spearheaded an historic fund raising effort that ensures the continuation of the Commercial Arboriculture program at the University of Massachusetts. This unprecedented move provides for the education of future industry members and the prosperity of commercial arboriculture for years to come.

Together we are stronger, more prosperous, and secure. We invite you to join MAA and gain these same benefits for your company.
