Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation Partners With S3DA

Williamsburg, KY – The Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation (TSAA) is a non-profit organization that focuses on tree stand safety and ensures that every hunter that uses a tree stand does so in a safe manner so that he or she comes home safe to their family and friends. The mission of the Tree Stand Safety Awareness Foundation is to significantly reduce tree stand incidents through promotion, education, and best practices.

As September is Tree Stand Safety Awareness Month, TSAA and S3DA have teamed up to provide S3DA student members a short quiz on the importance of Tree Stand Safety. Every student that completes the quiz will have the opportunity to win a full body safety harness courtesy of TSSA. Glen Mayhew, TSSA President states, “TSSA is proud to serve as a Conservation Member of the S3DA. We know that a significant percentage of the youth involved in S3DA either currently hunt or will become hunters as a result of their tremendous experiences in S3DA. TSSA is pleased to be able to provide them with the ABCs of Tree Stand Safety and other information about how to use tree stands in a safe and enjoyable manner.”

Hunters and members of the industry alike can help spread the message of the TSSA Foundation. Visit the TSSA website at or on social media at or @TreeStandSafety .
