The next time you are searching for a new neighborhood, consider one with lots of trees and vegetation!  The United Kingdom’s conducted a national study which proved people exposed to the greenest environments have lowest levels of health inequality related to income deprivation.  The bottom line?  Lush deciduous areas of plant life and trees positively affect moods!

In 1924, a group of forty tree care professionals and enthusiasts gathered to discuss tree care problems and solutions; this group of individuals came to be known as The National Shade Tree Conference.  Later, The National Shade Tree Conference would come to be known as The International Society of Aboriculture!  The ISA continues to be one of the most dynamic groups of arborists dedicated to sharing experience and knowledge for the benefit of society.
