Focusing on the CTLA Trunk Formula Method, this workshop gives an
overview of the appraisal process and provides an opportunity to
practice in the field. Participants will review common mistakes and
refine their craft as appraising arborists.

The first portion of the course is a lecture that discusses the four
primary components of the formula: trunk area, species rating,
location rating, and condition rating. Next, the error associated with
each component is identified, and recommendations are given for
reducing error.The second half of the course is a field application of
the concepts discussed in the lecture. Participants will divide into
groups and appraise several trees. The class will reconvene and
discuss the results.

Our mission is to enhance and promote the care and benefit of trees for present and future generations in Ontario through education, research and awareness.
