Conference Description:

Join us for our Western Tree Failure Database Annual Meeting at the beautiful Filoli. This year we'll be covering biomechanics as a vital component of tree management, landscape maintenance practices that contribute to tree failure, and understanding co-dominant stems. We'll take a deep look into the fallen giants of the Sierra. Larry Costello will be showing the PG&E data species profiles. 

Consider making a short case study presentation at the meeting! Email Larry Costello at larryoracleoak@me.com with details of your case study.
