The Texas Vegetation Management Association, TVMA,

 was established in 1992 when a group of managers recognized the need for fostering statewide training and professionalism within the state’s vegetation management industry.

Since then, TVMA membership has grown steadily to include a broad scope of vegetation managers and other workers who keep our rights-of-way soundly managed throughout the diverse ecologies of the Lone Star State.


TVMA is comprised of a volunteer board of directors who oversee standing committees chaired by members who lend their expertise to the following areas:

Scholarship: thousands of dollars in academic scholarships have been granted to dozens of deserving students majoring in forestry, range management, and other industry-related disciplines at junior colleges and universities across Texas.  Corporate contributions, the annual golf and fishing tournament and other events bring dollars into the scholarship fund.

Legislative Affairs:  TVMA has set a goal to become the voice of the vegetation management industry.  Educating the public, policymakers and business community about issues critical to the vegetation management industry is an ongoing effort. TVMA has established an annual visit with key legislators, staff and state agencies in Austin as a new program.

Training Opportunitiesoutside of the Annual Conference, TVMA also sponsors training opportunities through which you can receive Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).

Membership:  Although our membership has grown steadily over the years,
membership has nearly doubled since expanding our training programs.

The future is optimistic, because as TVMA programs expand, membership should too!
