Safe Depictions of Tree Work

The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) is proud of the long-term partnership we have with our advertisers, and we appreciate your business. Your advertising dollars allow us to produce the best magazine in the tree care industry – bar none.

Our readership includes the industry’s most professional and well-respected arborists and safety professionals. Together we strive to make our profession one of higher standards and clear safety initiatives.

TCIA seeks to lead the industry by encouraging tree care businesses and their employees to follow proper and safe standards and practices. We want your help in being vigilant about safety.

As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” In this spirit, TCIA maintains a standard of, at a minimum, prohibiting any image in either editorial or advertising copy that appears to depict improper or unsafe practices according to OSHA requirements as well as the industry’s ANSI Z133 standard for safe work practices.

We have a list of some of the most common errors in ads submitted for publication. We will be glad to provide this list to any advertiser, along with a copy of the Z133 safety standard upon request. We are happy to review in advance any images you are considering using in ad materials for TCI Magazine, The TreeWorker or other TCIA publications. Our goal is to partner with you to improve safety in the industry.

The TreeWorker

Written by arborists for field employees, each colorful issue of The TreeWorker newsletter gives “How-to” pointers on improving client relations, rigging, safety strategies, crew leadership and diagnostic scenarios. Arborist Quiz and Mr. Safety cartoons also make this monthly publication a “must-read" for company owners and field employees alike. Advertising is strictly limited, so reserve your space early!
