Queensland Arboricultural Association (QAA)
Founded in 1992, the Queensland Arboricultural Association Inc. (QAA) is a not-for-profit incorporated association representing arborists in Queensland and northern New South Wales. For 30 years, the QAA has continued to grow in membership numbers, recognition and esteem and continues to advocate on behalf of its members and raise awareness of arboriculture in the public domain.

Our purpose is to preserve, protect, maintain and enhance the recreational and environmental value of trees. As our industry learns
to adapt and grow it is the QAA's responsibility to lead by example.
Our mission is to provide support and guidance to the arborist industry and our members. We can do this by:
Finding new educational topics and methods
Taking part in safety and standards conversations
Providing new opportunities for our community to interact and evolve
Finding new ways to give back to our community
