    QTRA and Visual Tree Assessment – Estimating Probability of Failure training have now been combined into one, two-day workshop.

    Learning Objectives:

    The attendee will:
    develop a general understanding of the risk context within which the structural condition of trees is considered
    develop an understanding of the Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) method and be able to apply it to the risk assessment of groups of trees and individual trees
    be instructed in the use of the QTRA manual calculator, which will be provided to all trainees
    be instructed in the use of the QTRA calculator program, which will be provided to all trainees who successfully complete the training
    calibrate their ‘Likelihood of Tree Failure’ estimates with other trainees
    be able to inform risk management decisions using the QTRA Risk Thresholds
    develop a repeatable approach to the assessment of tree structure from the broad assessment of a tree population to the investigation of a tree
    develop an understanding of those attributes of the tree that inform the recognition and evaluation of tree structure, stability, and tree health in relation to tree structure
    physiological condition and Indicators of vitality
    basic anatomy of wood tissues and of vascular connectivity
    structural optimisation in trees
    compartmentalisation of decay and dysfunction
    develop an understanding of environmental factors that might affect tree structure, their visible indicators and possible consequences
    recognise external indicators of structural modifications in the tree, e.g.
    decay compensatory growth in the form of both primary shoot development and secondary thickening
    develop a general understanding of the principles that inform evaluation of visual observations in relation to differing fungal decay strategies.
