Welcome to the Society of Municipal Arborists! 

We are a membership-based group dedicated to building the confidence, competence and camaraderie of all people who manage trees and forests in cities.

The Society of Municipal Arborists (SMA) is dedicated to helping you grow and care for the trees in your community. Take part in our Arborist Exchange and Mentoring Programs, grow as a leader through the Municipal Forestry Institute, learn from colleagues in our webinar Learning Series, and read more about issues facing our industry in City Trees. We're here to help you and your urban forestry and municipal arboriculture programs grow!
