Arborists and Disaster Preparedness - The Professional's Role
A presentation to the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of ISA in Blackburg, Virginia; October 7, 2014.
This presentation is designed for arborists and urban foresters; consulting, commercial, utility, and municipal.
The presentation discusses the risk management roles that arborists can play in disaster planning, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
Some ideas, concepts, and slides presented are attributed to Rachel Barker (formally with Central Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission) who is now a utility arborist with ArborMetrics Solutions (transmission and distribution vegetation management services) based on work she did from 2010-2013. This includes the Vegetation Risk Management Plan (VRMP) and the Urban Tree Risk Index (UTRI) GIS tool.
