This webinar will give attendees an understanding of tree preservation dynamics through understanding 10 critical points in the process. The ten points discussed are: politics, budget, design team skills and motivation, right tree, site conditions, project requirements, construction sequencing, flexibility to change goals, end of project control, and post project support. When to say “Stop”, when to say “this is too much”, and when to change the design or take out the tree are discussed.
