Welcome to the Wisconsin Arborist Association's (WAA) website. Our mission is 'Improving the understanding of trees and the practice of arboriculture'.
The WAA was founded in 1964 by a small group of individuals dedicated to improving the knowledge and quality of the profession of arboriculture. Since that time it has grown into a large organization of commercial, municipal, utility and academic arborists. These members serve Wisconsin by providing private and public arboriculture services and research. The WAA is a chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture which has representation in over 30 countries.
