Best Management Practices - Utility Tree Risk Assessment
By John W. Goodfellow
ISA has developed a series of Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the purpose of interpreting tree care standards and providing guidelines of practice for arborists, tree workers, and the people who employ their services.
The purpose of this BMP is to guide utility personnel, utility vegetation managers, utility tree risk assessors, and line clearance contractors in assessing tree-related risk to overhead electric utility infrastructure by tree failure as accurately and consistently as possible, and to support decisions related to risk mitigation practices that achieve utility objectives. It also serves as a companion publication to the ANSI A300 Part 9: Tree, Shrub, and Other Woody Plant Management—Standard Practices (Tree Risk Assessment a. Tree Failure)
