      An Arborist's Master Class

      Have you ever wondered how and why most trees remain intact while others break apart? Or have you wondered why that OTHER company gets more business? You'll come away from this detailed seminar on tree structure with the ability to explain how and why you provide certain treatments to your customer's trees. And you will know how to perform that work in a safe manner according to ANSI Z133 standards. This Master Class will instill confidence in your arboricultural understanding and empower you to "make the sale" and remain safe while performing work.

      Note: All participants should bring hard hats and eye protection in order to participate in the full workshop.

      Chipper Operator Safety Workshop

      Accidents involving brush chippers are a significant concern for tree care and landscape employers and tree care workers who operate the equipment. Strong anecdotal information from the field tells us that chipper operators receive little or no formal training on chipper operation and field maintenance.

       The Arborist Safety Training Institute and the Tree Care Industry Association has implemented a Chipper Operator Specialist course designed to train tree care crews in hazards, as well as accepted practices for brush chipper operation and other associated tasks.  This course, which is built for crew members who often do not receive formal training opportunities, will increase involvement with self-policing.

      ISA CEUs and TCIA CTSP credits available!!

      This workshop is being funded in part by the Arborist Safety Training Institute.  Workshop sponsors include the Habersham County Cooperative Extension Service, Piedmont Arborist Consultant LLC, Georgia Arborist Association, Georgia Forestry Commission, Vermeer Tree Care and the Chestatee-Chattahoochee RC&D Council,
