Wind Load Simulation in Trees

Management for Extreme Climatic Events

Venue: Ashton Court Mansion, Bristol

Date: 5th & 6th December 2005


This is a master class in the theory and practice of tree statics. It is our intention that through better understanding of the science and technology in this field, a more informed debate will take place within arboricultural circles for the benefit of good tree management practice. Delegates will have the opportunity for hands-on experience of the techniques and will be taken through the theoretical principles underlying the methodology.
