Western Chapter, International Society of Arboriculture
Welcome to the Desert!

Yes, there are trees in the desert! Arborists in the arid regions of the Western Chapter face unique challenges, as well as sharing concerns that confront all tree-care professionals. This year, attend "Hot Arboriculture – Quench Your Thirst for Knowledge" and get the latest information on a wide range of cutting-edge topics. Our program will enlighten and entertain you, while expanding your understanding of future opportunities and solutions. So “put on your desert eyes,” and enjoy the networking, camaraderie and adventures that our annual conference provides.

The desert is at its best before summer’s true sizzle sets in, and you can enjoy the warm sunshine while taking in the broad vistas surrounding the scenic Coachella Valley. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy hiking into secluded oases, visit acclaimed botanic gardens, or just bask poolside in the desert sun. The desert communities also offer world-famous golf courses, fine dining, and first class spa experiences.

We are excited about the depth of our program this year, and hope that you will share our commitment to education and professionalism in arboriculture. Warning — Hot times ahead!
