About ASTI

The Arborist Safety Training Institute (ASTI), launched by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF) in 2013, seeks to provide affordable safety training and educational opportunities for tree care companies nationwide.

Without the resources to hire a safety and training coordinator, many tree care companies cannot effectively use the many valuable training tools available within the industry. ASTI workshops aim to make awareness of best safety practices more accessible for all companies.

This job and safety training not only benefits the individual companies, but also minimizes consequent deaths and injuries, and promotes overall workforce safety that is critical for the tree care industry.

TCIAF accepts grant applications on a rolling basis to fund a variety of safety training workshops, encompassing specialties such as chipper operator basics, felling, rigging, chain saw safety, aerial lift operation and aerial rescue, and many other safety training disciplines. Funds for these grants are donated by tree care companies, suppliers and distributors from around the country. These donors are making an investment in the future of safety throughout the tree care industry.
