About Our Program

WTI’s Certified Wildlife ProtectorSM Program trains arborists and tree care professionals how to protect nesting birds and other wildlife while complying with state and federal laws.  This information is critical to help arborists avoid a Notice of Violation (NOV).  An NOV is issued by agencies like the US Fish and Wildlife Service, but can be called in by any concerned citizen.  NOVs are associated with high monetary penalties and negative publicity.  It is in the best interest of all arborists and those in the tree care industry to comply with state and federal laws.  Become a Certified Wildlife ProtectorSM and take the first steps toward protecting our most vulnerable species while protecting you and your business from costly mistakes.
