To support aspiring arborists, the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) is excited to partner for the 25th year with STIHL Inc. to host Student Career Day (SCD) at TCI EXPO ’23.

This event is one of the tree care industry’s largest career development events for students pursuing a career in arboriculture, horticulture, or forestry currently attending a vocational school, college, or university. Students get a chance to connect with professionals from all over the country who are actively looking to hire new employees and invest in career training.

Stihl Inc. has sponsored this event for more than 16 years and is a big advocate of helping to build a pipeline of tree care professionals to meet the demand for arborists.

This year partner companies will also host a student skills competition, which so far, includes a knot-tying competition, a “gear match,” tree trivia and a pest identification.
