March 30th, 2017 -  8:00 am to 3:15 pm in Marion, Iowa

This one-day workshop is derived from the Wildland Fire Operations Training and designed to focus on chainsaw use. Instruction will be led by Ryan Schlater of the Iowa DNR and include in-class instruction and hands-on field experience with safe chainsaw operation, ground handling and tree felling cuts and techniques. Whether you have been running a saw for years or just learning to cut, this course will cover the primary knowledge and skill points to keep your crew working safely and serve as a great refresher. 

In April, Iowa Arborist Association was honored with an award from Governor Terry E. Branstad for volunteer work done at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery.

The IAA conducted their Annual Day of Service at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery in Novemeber 2015.  Our group worked hard and the staff there were extremely appreciative. The Govenor's Award is on display at the Iowa Arboretum in Madrid, Iowa.

As an organization, we can be proud of the job we did in giving back to our Service men and women who gave so much to us.  Thank you to all who participated in that event. This is a prime example that the volunteer work we do does not go unnoticed and is definitely appreciated.
