Researchers, arborists attend Biomechanics Symposium

Industry News

Sixteen research teams from North America, Europe and Australia participated.

| October 4, 2010

Tree researchers and arborists from around the globe gathered for a week-long event to study and perform experiments to gain answers to tree biomechanics questions.

Sixteen research teams from North America, Europe and Australia conducted field research, presented findings and outlined areas for future inquiry in such subject matters as breaking strength of open-grown maples, stability effects of root cutting and firmness in wind.

The Tree Biomechanics Research Week and Symposium was sponsored by the International Society of Arboriculture with support from the TREE Fund. It was held at The Davey Institute on Davey's corporate campus in Kent, Ohio, and the company's research facility in nearby Shalersville.

The event was held to fill some known research gaps, foster collaboration among those in the field and expose practicing arborists to the experimental process.

Program partners include The Davey Tree Expert Company, TREE Fund, Busy Bee Services LTD, Utility Arborist Association, Arboricultural Research and Education Academy, USDA Forest Service, Ohio Chapter ISA, Sherrill Tree and Stihl.
