Trees are shedding organisms, built to drop limbs and shed other parts. When this happens in natural settings, it creates habitat. When it happens in settled areas it can create property damage and personal injury. Risk management involves inspecting trees, recognizing targets, assigning risk, and identifying the mitigation that can reduce risk. This session will continue to introduce these concepts for the working arborist or landscaper. The afternoon field session will provide practical experience in using the new BMPs for Risk Assessment, following guidelines set forth in the ANSI A300 Part 9 standard.
