New App and Publication – Tree Risk Assessment

This publication supports the MSU Tree Risk Assessment Smartphone App. The app is intended to assist tree workers to identify and evaluate hazardous tree conditions. The app has two tools: (1) the Quick Assessment for use in non-detailed assessments such as an immediate post-storm inventory; and (2) Detailed Assessment for a more elaborate Basic (Level II) Risk Assessments or Advanced Risk Assessments. The app user should have some training in tree risk assessment, including knowledge of ANSI A300 (Part 9) Tree Risk Assessment and International Society of Arboriculture Best Management Practices in Tree Risk Assessment.
