Invitation to the ITEG Kick Off Event

Seminar and Workshop in Altdorf / Nuremberg 25-26 June 2011

ITEG is an association of tree experts who pursue a holistic approach for tree safety tests. ITEG experts are not committed to a specific method—instead, free and independently, they select the adequate evaluation method for each individual analysis situation in order to make clear statements about tree stability. This may also comprise the combination of different tools and methods in one single evaluation.

The ITEG Kick Off event targets professionals with several years of practical experience in tree care and tree assessment. It provides an overview over today‘s methods and techniques of tree examination and their optimum combination in theory and practice.

Moreover, this is the start of a series of seminars conducted by proven ITEG experts to enable professionals to acquire an in-depth knowledge about the possibilities and limits of today‘s analysis methods.

Finally, regular workshops will follow in order to exchange experiences regarding analysis methods used. This shall contribute to the continuous improvement of tree safety evaluation.
