Your LAST chance to attend Assessment of Tree Forks courses
 

Last Chance to attend Forks Courses

Instructed by: Dr Duncan Slater
Cost: Members £80 +VAT | Non-members £115 +VAT
 
22nd August 2017, Ilminster, Somerset
23rd August 2017, Cobham, Surrey
24th August 2017, Penkridge, Staffordshire
29th August 2017, Edinburgh, Scotland
30th August 20177, York
 

This is the last series of Assessment of Tree Forks, when Dr Duncan Slater will present the analysis of the answers from 346 arborists and arboriculturists who responded to a survey on how they manage bark-included junctions (representing over 6,500 years of arboricultural experience).

Duncan will also 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.

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 with David Evans and Frank Rinn – Last few places

Instructed by: Frank Rinn & David Evans
Cost: Members £200 +VAT | Non-members £260 +VAT

“This was an exceptionally good and interesting course of great relevance to me… David Evans, and Frank Rinn, were fascinating.”

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.
