Arboriculture Industry Leader: Dr. Kim Coder
Professor Kim Coder is a world-renowned
educator of arboriculture and urban forestry. He has had an enormous
impact on arboriculture education and professionalism at both the state
and national levels. He has also been a key force behind the development
of certification of arborists by the International Society of
Coder's contributions to the growth and development of the Georgia
Arborist Association have been invaluable. He has very generously
trained and entertained our organization with his frequent and
unforgettable seminars and lectures. We are especially grateful for all
the knowledge he has shared with us.
The GAA honored Dr. Coder with our
inaugural Award for Meritorious Contribution and Service in
Arboriculture at our first year-end Awards Ceremony on December 15,
2006. Each year since then, the GAA has presented this lifetime
achievement award to one of our members in honor of Dr. Coder, his
accomplishments, and his service in the field of arboriculture.
