Dr. Andrew Koeser, assistant professor of Urban Tree & Landscape Management, University of Florida, Gulf Coast REC, will present a TREE Fund Webinar April 13 on the topic of Tree Risk Assessment: Perceptions, Reality, and Reliability.
How safe is this tree? It’s a critical question, but the answer is not always straightforward. Learn to avoid the pitfalls of tree risk assessment as Dr. Koeser highlights sources of variation and potential bias when rating a tree’s likelihood of impact, likelihood of failure, and consequences of failure. Improve your assessment ability as he discusses opportunities for avoiding false precision and making the process more repeatable.
Dr. Koeser has received several TREE Fund grants; read his research here.
Dr. Arnold “Beau” Brodbeck (Gulf Coast Research & Extension Center, TREE Fund Trustee, Liaison Committee Chair, Research and Education Committee Member) will introduce Dr. Koeser and answer questions about the TREE Fund and its research grant programs.
