MAA The Maryland Arborist Association (MAA) is a professional trade association dedicated to fostering best practices within the region's arboriculture industry, providing education forums for on-going training and safety, and promoting community service through volunteerism.

For nearly 50 years, the MAA has brought professional arborists (and related trades) together for networking, professional growth, and advancement. In addition to these professional benefits, MAA members annually donate tens of thousands of dollars in man-hours in association-wide volunteer service projects.
