In the continuing effort to promote the interests of commercial and utility arboriculture, the Tree Care Industry Association and its members will once again travel to Washington, D.C. for the biennial Legislative Conference and Day on the Hill.

The two-day event (June 13-14) is designed to educate the U.S. government and officials on the unique issues and challenges the tree care industry faces.

Tree care professionals from all over the country will spend an afternoon in briefings to prepare for the following day on Capitol Hill. Members will join with a delegation of experienced Washington officials for visits with their representatives to discuss key industry issues. Members will also visit with legislators and their staffers — and the staffers of policy committees — to offer perspective on tree care-related issues.

Topics will include the Occupational Health & Safety Administration, labor policy, immigration issues, regulations and forestry policy.

According to the TCIA, this lobbying is done to protect and expand tree care markets and to reduce the cost of doing business.
