Conference Description:

Utility lines around trees are a concern for every arborist, not only those who work in the utility vegetation management industry. Join us in Anaheim for a workshop educating about avoiding electrical hazards, utility pruning specifications, the human performance factors of safety, and utility tree risk management. This event is geared towards tree workers involved in both utility and private tree maintenance.
