Assessment of Tree Forks
 

Assessment of Tree Forks returns for the final roadshow

Instructed by: Dr. Duncan Slater
Cost: Members £80 +VAT | Non-members £115 +VAT
CPD: 6 hours

For the final run, former Trees and Landscapes Officer and now Senior Lecturer in Arboriculture at Myerscough College, Dr Duncan Slater will reveal ground-breaking new findings which may change the way we assess junctions in trees and disprove the idea that tree forks are inherently weak and should be pruned out of trees.

As well as his own conclusions and discoveries, Dr. Slater will present the analysis of the answers from 346 arborists and arboriculturists who responded to a questionnaire about how they manage bark-included junctions (representing over 6,500 years of arboricultural experience).

Delegates attending the Branch event will receive comprehensive instruction in everything from previous research, the anatomy of branch attachment, factors affecting junction to risk assessments of junctions. Along with this they will receive the Forks Course Notes publication and an entertaining day’s CPD.

Tree Risk - What is the likelihood of failure?
 

Tree Risk - What is the likelihood of failure?

Instructed by: Frank Rinn and David Evans
Cost: Members £160 +VAT | Non-members £200 +VAT
CPD: 7 hours

Do you want to improve your Likelihood of Failure tree risk assessment skills? Come along and learn how to make credible, consistent, and calibrated decisions at ‘Likelihood of Failure Club’. This highly interactive, hands-on training shines the spotlight on what is often the most subjective, uncertain, and challenging part of a tree risk assessment. ‘What is the Likelihood of Failure?’

The morning presentations will outline the foundations on which the practical, hands-on, afternoon field sessions are built.

A thought-provoking day will provide you with essential knowledge in biomechanics, the ifs and buts of likelihood of failure decision-making, and an unmissable opportunity to calibrate your likelihood of failure estimates with other arborists.
