ASTI grants awarded to 27 organizations across the country

The Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI), recently awarded nearly $45,000 in grants to 27 organizations, who will use these funds to host safety training workshops throughout the country.

“When tree care workers learn proper practices, they begin to shift the culture of safety in our industry,” says Mark Garvin, TCIA president “These ASTI workshops will help bring quality, local and affordable training to working arborists who will take their safety seriously and help promote overall workforce safety.”

ASTI, launched by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF) in 2013, provides grants to fund job and safety training to working arborists across the country. Funds for these grants are donated by tree care companies, suppliers and distributors from around the country.


The following workshops will be hosted around the country between February 1, 2018 and July 31, 2018.

Workshop details will be available soon on TCIA’s Training Center.
