WORKSHOPS

WORKING THE ANGLES: FORCE & FRICTION IN TREE RIGGING & DISMANTLING – JOE HARRIS

Date: Sunday 17th November

Time: 10:30am – 1:30pm

Location: Anderson Park, Kennedy Road, Napier

Price: FREE with full conference registration

Spaces are limited

Joe Harris is an arborist based in Tasmania. His work is primarily climbing, with some training, workshops and other projects, including work on the new Australian Minimum Industry Standards. He has been in the industry for 14 years.

A good working understanding of the physics of force and friction during tree work will let arborists design safer and more efficient rigging systems. 

This presentation will use a number of simulated rigging situations to look at how small changes in rigging setups can be made to dramatically improve the magnitude and direction of force applied to the tree’s structure during rigging operations.

LYNNE BODDY PRESENTS FUNGI IN THE LIVES OF TREES – CHRISTCHURCH

Date: Friday 22nd November

Time: 9:45am – 3:00pm (lunch provided)

Location: Christchurch City Council Civic Offices, Level 1 Function Room, 53 Hereford St

Price: Members – $75 plus GST

Non-Members – $85 plus GST

This workshop is aimed at anyone who is interested in trees or fungi. Trees cannot exist in the natural environment without fungi, and their interactions are the underlying theme running throughout the workshop. This includes the essential mutualistic partnerships formed between fungi and the roots of trees, endophytic fungi living inconspicuously within all tree tissues, the fungi that break down dead tree tissues, recycling the nutrients within them and making them available for further tree growth. The workshop will consider wood decay, colonization of wounds in standing trees, heart-rot, and the importance of mature forests and individual veteran trees for biodiversity. Our world is changing, and some of the ways in which this affects trees and their associated fungi will be considered, along with some aspects of management and needs for conservation of species and habitat. The workshop will include indoor (and hopefully outdoor talks) and will be copiously illustrated in powerpoint presentation, with video clips and hopefully live material. There will be plenty of time for discussion, and active participation is encouraged. This workshop is a stand-alone education event organised by NZ Arb.
