Georgia Tree Care Industry Economic Impact and Licensing
In 2019 the GAA received the Georgia Tree Care Industry Economic Impact and Licensing Grant as part of the Urban & Community Forestry Grant from the Georgia Forestry Commission. GAA partnered with researchers from the University of Georgia to develop a questionnaire consisting of 31 questions.
In October of 2019, The GAA surveyed its membership to the scope of the tree care industry in Georgia; perceptions of safety and measures of professionalism; adherence to safety regulations; and perceptions about professional licensing. Results are presented in this report, along with an analysis of other state licensing models. E. M. Bauske, N. W. Norton, and W. J.Florkowski.
