Western Tree Failure Database Annual Meeting - Presented on Zoom
To view member pricing please log in.
Join us for our annual Western Tree Failure Database conference, but this year we are going virtual! We have speakers from all over North America. Our speakers will be covering topics from likelihood of failure while climbing (anchor), how to gauge risk for a storm, understanding trees and how they fail, and impact on structure from fire. It's a well rounded day!
If you would like to submit to present a case study please send your case study to Larry Costello at email@example.com. He will contact you about presenting.
