Description
Urban tree condition is probably the most frequently requested information, but lacks a scientifically based methodology. It is an important factor in the International Society of Arboriculture's BMP on Tree Risk Assessment because of its role in response growth, but no mechanism is cited.

This class will enable the participants to acquire the necessary knowledge and experience to carry out such assessment in a rigorous manner. It will provide tools and training for making an assessment that can be confidently used with professionals and amateurs alike.
