Using Tree Risk Assessment Logic in Planning Public Tree Location
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Noon - 1 PM
Scott A. Sjolander
In planning tree placement to gain recommended shade canopy levels, Citizen tree stewards need some criteria to judge wisely. This talk uses Tree Risk Assessment training in considering the likelihood of a tree failure causing harm to persons, causing property damage, or disrupting critical services. These observations are not hard and fast design rules, but rather considerations in weighing the advantage of having a tree in a location, versus the consequences of its causing an unforeseen problem. Scott takes combines twenty years in Urban Forestry Extension with ISA Tree Risk Assessment training in providing this advice.
Cost: There is no fee to attend this event.
