About QAA

The Queensland Arboricultural Association Inc. (QAA) is a Not for Profit incorporated association representing arborists in Queensland and Northern New South Wales. 

The QAA was created on a phone call in early 1992; a simple, “yeah, let’s do it” was the beginning of our journey. You can find out more about our history on our About Us page.

Today, almost 30 years later, QAA's original goal of encouraging more young contractors to join the industry, to keep them safe, and bring the community together, remains the same.  

As our industry learns to adapt and grow it is QAA’s responsibility to lead by example and provide support and guidance to the arborist industry and our members. We are committed to showing our members that we still care about the things they care about and to thinking outside the box to find new ways to support them and the industry.

Members now have access to the QAA Member app with news, events and member only perks.
