TCI EXPO 2020 Will Not be Held this Year

With the direction and support of our board of directors, TCIA has made the difficult decision to not hold TCI EXPO 2020. TCI EXPO has been the world’s largest tree care show and conference for the past 30 years. As the producer of this great show, the Tree Care Industry Association takes our responsibility very seriously to be the leader in safety and doing what is right for our attendees, and the industry at large.

Most of British Columbia’s old-growth forests of big trees live only on maps, and what’s left on the ground is fast disappearing, a team of independent scientists has found.

In the report, the scientists revealed most of the forest counted as old growth by the province is actually small alpine or boggy forest. It’s old — but the trees are not the giants most people think of when they are referring to old growth.
