Introduction to Tree Appraisal
Arborists and landscape professionals are often asked, "What is my tree worth?" Often it is general interest in their tree values. However, more likely it is about a claim for damages or a loss. This is where it is important to understand the foundations of the tree appraisal process to help your client or tree owner, manager. There are principles and practices which allow Green Industry Professionals to render an opinion of value for plants and this introductory seminar will explore those concepts.
The Foundations of Tree Appraisal is a one-day seminar which will teach the principles of plant appraisal and examine case studies to help establish a baseline competence for conducting appraisals. The seminar will be led by Lindsey Purcell and Andrew Mertz, which both hold the ISA Board Certified Master Arborist and Registered Consulting Arborist credentials.
