Tree-Marking Paint Association

The Tree Marking Paint Association (TSA) Plan has been withdrawn by the producers, who joined the Product Care Paint Stewardship Program in 2011. These producers include Nelson Paint Company of Canada Limited, Aervoe Industries Limited and Isico Paint Company Limited. The products within the TSA were restricted to two basic commercial aerosol paints:

  • tree paint (used primarily by the forest industry)
  • upside-down paint (used primarily by the survey industry and minimal amounts used by the mining industry)
  • Annual Reports
