Arborists routinely examine trees for health and risk. The assignment may involve site review, or checking a tree before pruning or removing it. Perhaps it involves collecting data to report about appraisal of damage or trespass issues, or forensic investigations about injuries cause by falling trees.
This course covers the professional practice of recognizing and understanding evidence, and learning how to effectively use it in reports. It applies to tree care companies and climbers, municipal, utility and consulting arborists – anyone working with trees who may later need to explain what was done on any given day. Topics include how to systematically collect, analyze and interpret evidence, record keeping, and photography, and how to assemble all of that into a well-ordered report.
A copy of Julian Dunster’s book “Documenting Evidence: Practical Guidance for Arborists” will be provided as a part of the registration cost. Julian has testified in court cases and served as an expert witness at inquests in Canada and Hong Kong.
