Who We Are

Editorial Board

ISA’s two Editorial Boards are comprised of tree care professionals with technical expertise in various disciplines and geographical regions within the arboriculture and urban forestry professions who provide oversight of the content quality and accuracy of ISA’s periodical publications.

Arborist News Editorial Board

ISA’s Arborist News Editorial Board is the primary review panel for the technical content in this bimonthly magazine, available to ISA members both in print and online. The Board also helps solicit articles, sets editorial and advertising policy, and establishes content guidelines to provide readers the latest in arboricultural news and education.
