An Introduction to Arboricultural Biomechanics: How Arboricultural Practices Influence the Likelihood of Failure

Keynote Speaker Presentation: Brian Kane, 2022 ISA Chadwick Award Winner

Synopsis: Arborists often manage the likelihood of tree failure—whether while assessing tree risk or when working in a tree to reduce risk. Understanding and applying key concepts from Engineering and Physics can help arborists better understand the likelihood of failure when assessing risk, how to mitigate it, and how work safely.
