Lone Star Tree Appraisal Workshop
A Texas Chapter ISA Master's Series Event

March 3, 2017, Buda, Texas - several spots left!!!
March 24, 2017, Fort Worth, Texas

Need to stand apart from the crowd and take your arboricultural career to the next level?  If so, then the ISA-Texas Master Series' "Lone Star Tree Appraisal Workshop" might be for you!

Two of ISAT's own experts will offer insights into what actually works in Texas courts.  Todd Watson, Ph.D./BCMA, and Greg David, RCA/BCMA, will team-up to "shoot from the hip" about authentic, Texas-sized, tried-and-true tree appraisal techniques.

From simple "car versus tree" insurance incidents, through oil and gas surface damage claims, complex herbicide drift cases, and encroachment & wrongful removal cases, Watson and David will steer you through the appraisal techniques that make sense in Texas. 
We'll talk theory and methodology in the morning, and actual case reviews and scenarios in the afternoon.  Of particular interest will be an inside look at two recent precedent-setting appellate and Texas Supreme Court cases related to tree appraisal.

While the Lone Star Tree Appraisal Workshop will be of great interest to anyone providing tree appraisal and valuation services in Texas, a working knowledge of the concepts covered in the 9th Edition of the Guide for Plant Appraisal is highly recommended.
