Congratulations to the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) on its 75th Anniversary! Since 1938, the association has grown in membership to more than 2,200 commercial tree care firms today. Their mission to advance the tree care business, with a focus on safety and best practices, not only benefits businesses in the industry, but also consumers. (Think rescue following storm power outages…)
Of course we enjoy highlighting an association anniversary, but TCIA is celebrating in a way that we value especially, since it reflects an appreciation for history, leadership and service. As part of their 75th association anniversary, they are soliciting individuals to pass along stories and pictures related to the tree care industry over the last 75 years. Staff members are compiling this rich history of the tree care industry to celebrate the shared experiences of its members.
One Of A Kind is certainly a company that honors history and appreciates the joy in discovering tangible moments from the past so they can be relived. Part of the fun is never knowing what will turn up to become a treasure. And the packrats become the heroes! It’s rare to step back and take a look at a rich corporate history, let alone the shared history of an entire industry. Asking for submissions allows TCIA to preserve and reflect a collective experience that will inspire and enlighten.
TCIA reminds, “Your history is our history.” Therefore, the 100th anniversary artwork that Lawrence Romorini created for longtime TCIA member Bartlett Tree Experts takes on even greater significance for One Of A Kind. This retrospective, featured on our website, is part of a great American industry, which honors its past, celebrates its present and looks forward to an exciting and important future. Cheers to TCIA!
