We promote the hiring of companies who have ISA certified professionals on staff. ISA Certified Arborists® are held to a Code of Ethics and are encouraged to follow industry standards. 

Continuing Education

Professional arborists are encouraged to keep current on best practices and industry standards through workshops, seminars, the annual conference and on-line education opportunities. 

The Kentucky Arborists' Association (KAA) is a "State Chapter" of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).  Our state-wide organization is a volunteer-driven, non-profit educational and professional society dedicated to promoting proper tree care throughout the commonwealth.  We represent arborists throughout the state of Kentucky and beyond through education, training and professional development. 


Kentucky Chapter, ISA values making an investment in the future of professional arboriculture through networking, education, research, consumer satisfaction, and safety, while working to maintain integrity and credibility of the profession.


Promote awareness of responsible tree care practices through research, education, and training, for arboricultural and community benefits.


Professional tree care practitioners have the required knowledge, training, and expertise to perform proper tree care safely.

Volunteerism in the Kentucky Chapter, ISA

Since the organization’s inception in 1974, volunteers have powered the Chapter's growth.  Active participation by members provides them with opportunities for personal and professional development.  Volunteers are crucial to the success of the Chapter.  The Chapter Board of Directors (“Board”) recruits, trains, and recognizes volunteers for their valuable contributions to the Chapter, profession and public.  KAA welcomes all volunteers to our Board Meeting!  See our Calendar of Events  for meeting dates and times.
