Howsafe 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.
