The Connecticut Tree Protective Association encourages all individuals who are interested in advancing the care of trees in Connecticut to join as members.
While membership is largely drawn from the ranks of the tree care professionals practicing in the state, it is by no means restricted to this group.
Why You Should Join
The Association is established for the following purposes:
- to promote the protection and care of trees in Connecticut by encouraging the practice of proper and efficient methods by arborists;
- to advocate beneficial legislation and adequate funding for tree planting and care, by the state and by the cities, towns and boroughs of Connecticut;
- to bring about closer cooperation among all parties interested in the protection of trees;
- to sponsor meetings devoted to the presentation and exchange of scientific data and general information helpful to tree preservation practices;
- to foster research in the field of arboriculture;
- to encourage a greater interest in the planting of trees; and
- to promote good fellowship and ethical practices in the arboricultural profession.
