Welcome to the Wisconsin Arborist Association (WAA) website! Since it's founding in 1964, the WAA has been dedicated to our mission of "Improving the understanding of trees and the practice of arboriculture". Over the years, this organization of commercial, municipal, utility and academic arborists has grown to include over 790 members with the like minded goal of taking care of Wisconsin's trees.
These members service Wisconsin by providing private and public arboriculture services, research and outreach activities. The WAA is a chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture which has representation in over 30 countries.
