Accountability is a game changer! High performance work cannot be

accomplished without accountability at all levels. Participants will

HAZARD TREE EVALUATIONS FOR SAFER PUBLIC PROPERTIES

 

Special: Send 4 participants and get the 5th free

 

 Date: June 11           Time: 8:30am - 12:30pm

                                   Fee: $80.00               Location: FDOT

                                   4 hours/.4CEUs         Instructor: Earth Advisors Inc.

 

Trees need regular care to avoid becoming safety issues in our communities. This class is for those who inspect, who maintain, or who are concerned about hazard trees on streets and public properties. We will review how trees become hazardous, what it takes to produce trees that are Green Assets instead of liabilities, and then perform actual field Hazard Tree Evaluations and Tree Risk Assessments. Example Tree Evaluation Forms will be provided in class packets and used in the field exercises. Reference information will also be available. A final review of the necessity for written Evaluation records to manage liabilities related to trees will end the program. This program is a vital training for public agency personnel who must make hazard tree and tree risk decisions. Without a written method for evaluating trees, an agency is open for potential liability when trees are left as hazards in public areas. "If you don't see it, it isn't a problem" does not hold up for public property owners anymore. Professionals are required to be trained and able to make the decisions necessary for their responsibilities. Come and get this field training so that hazard trees are not a stumbling block for your urban forestry efforts.
