This research note describes the work of the International Society of Arboriculture’s Science and Research Committee, a group of 13 professionals and researchers working to make arboriculture research more easily accessible and to identify future research needs. A series of literature reviews are described, and a link is provided to the ISA’s research database, which is intended to make it easier for scientists and practitioners to access relevant information. Finally, a number of research priorities are identified related to pruning, tree strength, the effects of external forces, risk assessment methods, tree root systems, and damage and liability.
