A small dedicated group of researchers, tree climbers, and photographers set out to capture a singular image from the Waipoua forest: a complete unobstructed picture of a full grown forest conifer. Their efforts became the New Zealand Tree Project, compositing the final picture from thousands of individual shots, and producing a documentary video of this towering project. (A,Bp)

Falls are a constant danger for arborists working at height. Understanding the limitations and differences between fall protection, fall arrest, and fall restraint systems can be the difference in going home safe, or taking a trip to the hospital. Ed Carpenter explains in this month’s Science of Arboriculture. (A,M,T,L,Bm)

Species diversity in an urban forest is vital to surviving a disease threat. In this month’s Science of Arboriculture, we look at the efforts in Sweden to learn from painful lessons and create a cooperative template between arborists, municipalities, and universities in promoting species diversity.

In 2012 an ambitious project brought together arborists, municipal managers, and university researchers from three different countries to help establish standards for the young and growing arboricultural practice in the Baltic Sea region. Lina Juisoo explains the challenges and successes of Project Green Man. (A,M,Bm)

The destructive potential of a medium-to-large falling branch is commonly acknowledged by arborists, but just how much force can a branch deliver to a target? John Goodfellow recaps a study for the utility industry attempting to answer that question in this month’s episode of Science of Arboriculture. (A,U,M,T,L,Bs)

Ever more detailed and complex tree inventories provide a wealth of information to urban forest managers, and can help identify potentially unsound trees before they fail. But just how much of that information should be made available to the general public? Is there a downside to flagging potential risks? Jaroslav Kolarik reports on a program in the Czech Republic.

Vegetation management under and around powerlines is a never ending struggle, but with today’s satellite imagery and GIS, along with status reports from ground crews, near real-time workload planning and cost forecasting is possible. Barry Grubb of Florida Power and Light and Chris Kelly of Clearion Software report on advances in this technology. (A,U,M,Bm)
