SCA Annual Events
  • SCA Field Day
    Held in conjunction with the ISA Annual Conference, each year we travel to a local tree care company for a 'behind-the-scenes tour of their operations. We discuss Best Management Practices (BMPs), business strategies, and other topics. Also includes the annual SCA Business Meeting and a tour of a local historical landmark.
  • RakeMaster Challenge
    An exciting obstacle course relay race, held every year at the International Tree Climbing Competition
  • Member Happy Hour and Board Member Meet-and-Greet
    Come and meet the SCA Board Members, and network with other members in our organization! Held during the ISA Annual Conference, enjoy a drink on the SCA. Keep your eyes on the member magazine for details on this exciting event.

It's all fun and games until someone hands you the rake. Then it's all fun and games and raking.
