- How can you tell if a tree is safe?
- Do you want to make better tree assessments, increase your knowledge of tree biomechanics, wood decay and diagnostic tools?
- Is increasing the precision and accuracy of your inspections and reports important?
Back-to-back workshops with Frank Rinn, inventor of the RESISTOGRAPH and Tomograph and world famous instructor on tree inspection can help you to be a better municipal arborist.
MTOA is bringing Frank Rinn in from Heidelberg, Germany just for these advanced workshops. Classroom topics will include: wood anatomy, tree biomechanics, the effects of pruning and cabling, and possibilities and limitations of technical inspection methods. Outdoor hands-on field time with Frank and his assistants will include: resistance drilling, sonic tomography and sonic root plate assessment.

Everyone registering for the Day 2 Advanced Tree Safety Workshop will receive an ArWiLo-software licence (WIN, ANDROID, or MacOSX). This software allows to determine the impact of pruning on wind-load reduction and this can be done on a PC/Notebook, tablet, or smartphone (at the tree).
