  • Education
    your questions about certification Find out how many CEUs you have Find out about upcoming ISA test dates News from ISA The Certification Board has revised the ISA Certified Arborist Code of Ethics The ISA Certified Arborist Code of Ethics was intended to improve professional practice and provide a measure of protection for consumers of arboricultural services While most credential holders agreed in theory that implementation of ethical standards was necessary we did hear significant feedback about certain parts of the agreement Because all ISA Certified Arborists are required to sign the agreement to receive or maintain their ISA credential it is important that this document reflect the value and the best practices of a quality certification program and the professional arborist ISA Certified Arborists believe that this agreement does and will advance the profession of arboriculture ISA is not letting this feedback go unheard and we have made changes to the requirement for disclosure We have now limited the scope of this disclosure requirement asking all ISA Certified Arborists to only report those activities which are related to the professional practice of arboriculture All ISA Certified Arborists will be asked to acknowledge the changes by signing the updated agreement

  • Attendees
    2016 General Sessions 9 15 10 am Developments in Tree Health Assessment Technology with Dr Glynn Percival Plant Physiologist Technical Support Specialist Bartlett Tree Research Laboratory Trees planted in urban or amenity landscapes streets town centres car parks etc face a number of stresses drought root de oxygenation salinity that singly or in combination can have devastating impacts on survival of not only newly planted trees but well established mature trees Assessing the health of trees can be quantified using a suite of non destructive and non invasive such as leaf chlorophyll fluorescence CF leaf chlorophyll content root stem leaf electrolyte leakage twig starch analysis and leaf water potential From a practical point of view most of these measurements are determined using a lightweight portable piece of equipment which requires minimal training in its use and application and no detailed scientific background knowledge Some systems take seconds to obtain a reading allowing for the evaluation of many trees in one day Aims of this presentation are to 1 Understand how environmental stress influences tree biology 2 How tree vitality systems link in to tree stress responses 3 How to correctly use and download tree vitality data 4 How to correctly interpret tree vitality data Allow all participants the opportunity to gain hands on practical experience of using and evaluating two recently developed and commercially available tree vitality equipment known as Arborcheck http www arborcheck com ISA CEUS Certified Arborist 1 TW Climber 1 Municipal 1 BCMA Science 1 10 15 11 30 am Biomechanical Approaches to Understand How Trees Fail with Gregory A Dahle Ph D This talk will explore how researchers from ecology forestry and arboriculture have utilized biomechanics to understand how trees contend with the forces Mother Nature can throw at them during the long life span Biomechanics approaches integrate biology and engineering principles to explore how organisms deal with their environment While this integration may initially seem simple trees and buildings have substantial differences Typically a building size does not change over time and the strength of the construction material is relatively fixed Yet trees are every growing and the increase in size results in a buildup of larger environmental loads wind snow or ice Furthermore the material properties of the wood change as trees move from a juvenile growth to a mature growth phase During the talk we will learn the difference between the static and dynamic approaches to tree biomechanics and how these complementary methods are beginning to help the arboricultural community better understand tree stability ISA CEUS Certified Arborist 1 25 TW Climber 1 25 Municipal 1 25 Break Out Sessions Climber Tree Worker 10 15 12 15 am Pssst It s all Single Line Technique But is the Climbing Line moving or stationary with Rip Tompkins Modern tree climbing techniques and equipment have been steadily evolving since the early 1990 s This is probably truer today more so than ever ISA s Tree Climbing Competitions have been one of the major catalysts for innovation and creativity as climbers from all around the world interact and compete against one another That coupled with the growth of the internet and smart technology has greatly accelerated the exchange of information amongst climbers everywhere Unfortunately when things change so fast terminology can often be very confusing In this presentation we will attempt to clarify some of the confusion especially around the use of the term Single Line Technique as well as look at some of the pros and cons of modern tree climbing systems ISA CEUS Certified Arborist 2 TW Climber 2 Municipal 2 BCMA Science 0 5 BCMA Practice 2 1 4 pm Precision Felling Techniques and Working the Plan with Rip Tompkins Whether felling a whole tree or a tree trunk getting the job done safely in a controlled manner is imperative For those of us working in the urban environment removing trees there are numerous hazards and obstacles we need to avoid to be successful Unfortunately there are too many accidents unplanned events that occur when felling trees causing injuries and damage to property Using a felling plan and working through that plan will greatly reduce the number of unplanned events accidents In this presentation we will look at the history of cutting techniques used to fell trees We will examine the functions of the face notch back cut and most importantly the hinge We will explore how different types of cuts can be used in different situations to improve control and safety The use of the 5 step felling plan will be introduced as a means of reducing accidents and improving results Understanding different types of wood fiber and the function of the hinge are critical to the decision making process We will also discuss the proper use of pull lines in a felling operation This presentation will create a good foundation of knowledge for tree cutters in today s urban setting ISA CEUS Certified Arborist 1 Utility 1 TW Climber 1 Municipal 1 BCMA Science 0 5 BCMA Management 0 5 Breakout Sessions

  • Championship
    of these annual championships is education The Tree Climbing Championship brings together the area s most experienced climbers for the benefit of friendly competition and the exchange of ideas and techniques This will enable participants the opportunity to experience state of the art climbing techniques equipment innovations and safety regulations under simulated working conditions Rules for each event will be available for review on the day of the Climbing Championship It is the responsibility of each contestant to review the rules and address any questions with the judges prior to participating in each event The five events are as follows 1 WORK CLIMB Journeyman Apprentice less than 2 years experience The work climb is designed to judge the contestant s ability to safely advance through various workstations in the tree while on a rope and saddle Each participant is allowed approximately 5 minutes to demonstrate climbing skills and complete the course 2 BELAYED SPEED CLIMB This timed event tests the competitor s ability to climb a predetermined route from ground to approximately 60 feet up a tree with a belayed climbing line attached for safety The competitor must reach and ring a bell at the top of the course in the least time possible 3 SECURED FOOTLOCK The Secured Footlock measures the contestant s ability to perform a vertical ascent into a tree using a Prusik hitch or other approved friction hitch for fall protection and the footlock rope climbing method on a doubled climbing line The heights are 15 meters 49 2 5 for the men s event and 12 meters 39 4 5 for the women s event Mechanical ascenders may not be used The event is timed and the contestant with the fastest time wins 4 THROW LINE EVENT The Throwline is a timed event that tests
