Mission and Objectives 

The Quebec Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture, Société internationale d'arboriculture Québec (SIAQ), is a non profit industry organization, founded in 1977. We serve and unite professionals devoted to tree care and tree preservation. 

As a chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture, the SIAQ is part of a network of arborists and tree care professionals in over 60 countries, serving over 30 000 members. The SIAQ also maintains strong ties with partner organizations throughout the French speaking world such as the Société Française d’Arboriculture (France), the Association Suisse de soins aux arbres (Switzerland) and Arboresco (Belgium). Additionally, the SIAQ is a founding member of Quebec's horticultural trades association, the Québec Vert (formally FIHOQ - Fédération Interdisciplinaire de l’horticulture ornementale du Québec).

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to foster a greater appreciation of trees and promote the professional practice of arboriculture through education, research and technology.
