Tree Risk Assessment
Approved for 3 ISA CEU's
SAF Credits Pending
This is an introduction to Tree Risk Assessment and is a precursor to TRAQ. Tree Risk Assessment promotes the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity.
