Event Details

Protecting and Preserving Trees during Construction

Date: March 2, 2018
Location: Morris Arboretum, PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES
Organizer: MORRIS ARBORETUM
Sponsor: MORRIS ARBORETUM
Description: Trees are valuable assets to commercial and residential property, contributing up to 25% of the property’s assessed value. Successful tree preservation during construction assures the project’s goals are achieved without jeopardizing the health and lifespan of protected trees. Since there
must be a collaborative process by decision makers for this to occur, people from all
disciplines involved with the construction process, such as landscape architects, builders, developers, architects, and arborists, will benefit from this presentation. Information
presented includes how to designate adequate tree protection zones based on the tree’s structural
and biological needs, specifying and installing protective fencing, and how construction processes such as cut/fill, trenching, and soil compaction effect both existing and proposed trees. Valuable lessons learned from working on a variety of construction jobs will be presented, tree protection specifications will be discussed, and tree protection myths will be presented and dispelled. This course carries 5.5 CEUs for ISA certified arborists. (S=0, P=2.75, M=2.75).
LA-CES credits for landscape architects have been applied for.
