Research is the engine that propels arboriculture and urban forestry into the future. New knowledge, technologies, and tools provide arborists with improved tree care practices that result in healthier urban forests. The ISA Science and Research Committee (SRC) is composed of 13 professionals and researchers who are dedicated to elevating the importance of research within ISA. Our mission is to foster exchange among the research community and professionals, and identify important new opportunities for science and research that add value to arboriculture and urban forestry. This article describes accomplishments since our inception in 2006, as well products that you can expect to receive during the next five years.
