Changing times and new opportunities led the City’s leadership to embrace the Skywalk and show the community of Humboldt County that it is resilient as well. Consulting arbor- ists with Tree Solutions Inc. coordinated with the City and Zoo Staff, Eureka Community, General Contractor, Engineers, and the ground and tree supported Bridge Builders. Attendees will learn more about tree biology and biomechanics, as well as how a con- sulting arborist can provide key information and guidance for two simultaneous projects.

This webinar will discuss the tools tree climbers use every day to stay safe and make money. From carabiners to the human body, how can we build systems that are com- patible, well configured and resilient? What procedures and habits can we create to lengthen our life span in the industry? What are some of the signs of fatigue? And, when should we retire?
