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.
An exciting obstacle course relay race, held every year at the International Tree Climbing Competition
SCA Member Happy Hour at the ISA Annual Conference
A fun, members-only event held on the ISA Annual Conference Trade Show floor! Come grab a drink and network with other commercial arborists and professionals, and meet the SCA Board for some one-on-one discussions.
In addition to our annual events, we host regional events and a regular workshop at the North American Tree Climbing Championship - past topics have included ANSI Standards and Best Safety Practices, taught by some of the top professionals in our industry.
