 About IAA



The Indiana Arborist Association (IAA) strives to enhance the quality of life for Indiana residents by encouraging the planting, maintenance and preservation of trees.

We seek to do this by increasing public awareness of the benefits provided by well maintained trees, and promoting the advantages of working with qualified professional arborists who use current industry standards.

IAA endeavors to efficiently serve the needs of its members by fostering opportunities for training and the exchange of ideas, and encouraging high ethical standards among its members and in the industry at large.​
