    Have you got a VALID Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategy?

    Why it's VALID

    This seminar will show you how you can discharge your duty of care if you own or manage trees.

    It’ll inlcude the work we've done with the Tasmanian Department of State Growth, and how it can easily translate to Councils, Parks, and Landowners.

    There’s an opportunity here to have many of Tasmania’s major duty holders all singing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to how you go about managing the risk from tree failure.

    It's being held at the Hobart Skills Centre and everyone is welcome.

    The cost is in AU$

What's in it for me?

Tree risk assessment and management can be really hard work, can’t it?  Well, the good news is it needn’t be.  We've done a lot of the hard lifting by taking the bafflegab (vague words) and numberwang (difficult maths) out of tree risk for you.  Not only have we taken away a lot of the friction from likelihood of occupancy and consequence decision-making.  We've written most of tree risk-benefit management strategy for you.

One of the things you’re going to love about upgrading to VALID is how much more user-friendly you’re going to find it.  Whether you carry out tree risk assessments, or manage tree risk, it's about to get a lot less complicated and more effective.

Don't take our word for it.  "Uncomplicated, intuitive, simpler, clearersmarter".

This is what everyone's saying after they've moved ahead and invested in VALID tree risk training.

The experience of early adopters shows that VALID is such a far-reaching improvement in the world of tree risk that we’re prepared to put our money where our mouth is.  If, after training, you go back to how you used to assess and manage tree risk we’ll refund you the fee.

For more information see Why it's VALID and VALID Tree Risk Training, or Basic Tree Risk Assessment Training.  Or contact us to find out how we can help.  Can't make these dates? Or want to follow what we get up to? Let's stay in touch.
