Conference Description:

Join us for two days with Dr. Frank Rinn! We'll be covering everything from wood anatomy, biomechanics, and tree risk assessment. Dr. Rinn will mainly be demonstrating the ARBOTOM® as well as the RESISTOGRAPH® in the field. He will share techniques for better results. Back in the classroom Dr. Rinn will help interpret the results found on the tree. The second day classroom is limited to 40 people. As an added bonus the tree used in the demonstration will be cut down to compare the results of the RESISTOGRAPH® to the actual tree. Attendance of Day 1 is mandatory to attend Day 2.
