What is the Society of Municipal Arborists?

The Society of Municipal Arborists (SMA) is a professional association of arborists that specialize in the management of trees located in urban areas. The organization is an affiliate of the International Society of Arboriculture. The mission of SMA is to protect and sustain community forests. They strive to improve the quality of resources and support services made available to urban foresters, municipal arborists, and other relevant landscaping professionals.

The organization holds an annual conference and publishes educational materials. All members and member organizations must adhere to a code of professional ethics. This code of ethics promotes the values of integrity, fiscal responsibility, and honesty. Additionally, all members implicitly agree to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and methodology in the field.
