Webinar 1 Tree Risk Assessment: January 16, 2024; 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST
Get storm ready; assess tree risk before a disaster strikes! This first webinar in our series reviews the steps to assess and address risks to your urban forest before disaster strikes. Tree risk assessment involves creating dialogue with emergency management personnel, developing a storm team, and identifying priority areas for assessment. To conduct a risk assessment, communities will be guided through who to hire, the three levels of assessment, and how to use the urban tree risk index. This webinar will also cover the importance and logistics of mitigating risk by removing trees and pruning, establishing timelines for periodic reevaluation, and performing periodic routine tree evaluations. Led by GIC’s executive director Karen Firehock, AICP, GIC’s director of Forest Conservation Matt Lee, ISA, TRAQ and Darren Green, Landscape Architect, Alexandria Louisiana.
