IACA ART Guidelines
In 2020, the Institute started developing Arboricultural Report Type (ART) Guidelines to guide consulting arboriculturists in their report writing. These guidelines provide a concise description and naming of the types of “Arborist Reports” that are currently used in the arboricultural consulting industry to ensure that those who write, commission, read and assess such reports, understand the purpose and required content of the report. The aim of the guidelines is to outline the minimum acceptable content for each report type to provide more uniformity in reports submitted.
The full set of ART Guidelines will be made available to IACA members. The guide for Arboricultural Impact Assessment reports is available here. Prospective members should refer to this document before submitting reports to IACA, and request the other report type ART Guides from IACA before applying for membership.
