The TCBW Committee partners with a diverse collective of tree and wildlife professionals to promote best practices to reduce impact of tree care on birds and other wildlife, and to increase all values of sustainable forests.

The Tree Care for Birds and Other Wildlife Program is a recognized committee of the Western Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture. Participants represent the tree care industry and wildlife advocates in California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii. The project's principal supporters are CalFire and The Britton Fund. Other supporters are acknowledged on our About Us page.

Best Management Practices have been established to protect birds and other wildlife during and beyond the nesting season, and to enhance habitat. The project advocates proper training of tree care providers and encourages those that hire them to require they adopt these practices.
