Workshops and Symposia
In addition to the ISA Annual Conference and Trade Show, ISA occasionally offers smaller, regional meetings and workshops to meet the growing demand for additional educational opportunities.
These workshops allow experts within the arboricultural industry to create timely, regionally-relevant learning and networking opportunities for ISA Members, credential holders and professionals from other related disciplines to gather together in a learning environment.
Opportunities for regional meetings will be listed as they become available.
Tree Biomechanics Week 2013
August 15–16, 2013, in Shalersville and Kent, Ohio, US
The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and the Davey Tree Expert Company (Davey) have partnered to offer Tree Biomechanics Week 2013, a
scientific endeavor intended to provide researchers
actively working in the area of tree biomechanics with an opportunity to come together, generate questions, exchange experimental
design ideas, and coordinate scientific efforts on a common site.
Why do some trees stay upright in a storm while others fail? How much decay is too much? Can trees be pruned to prevent damage from ice, snow, or extreme wind?
A key element of Tree Biomechanics Week is a two-day research symposium at the Davey Institute. This event is your opportunity to learn about the latest advances in biomechanics research and its implications for assessing tree risk, interact with researchers and practitioners from around the world, and see demonstrations from experiments in progress.
Save the date: the symposium will be August 15-16. Registration information will be posted soon.

ISA and Davey would like to thank the generous sponsors of Tree Biomechanics Week 2013: the TREE Fund, the Ohio Chapter of ISA, the Canadian TREE Fund, UAA, AREA, Rinntech, BioCompliance Consulting, Inc., and Busy Bee Services, Ltd.
