Title 1 - Reliability-based Vegetation Management

Reliability-based vegetation management targets worst performing circuits.  It requires an understanding on how trees cause outages and tree risk assessment. 

Attendees of this presentation will be able to:

    • Understand how trees cause outages
    • Characterize how the majority of tree-related service interruptions occur
    • Explain reliability-based scheduling

Title 2 - An Overview of Utility Arboriculture: The Utility Specialist Certification Study Guide

In 2018, the International Society of Arboriculture published a revision of the utility specialist certification study guide by Randall H. Miller and Geoffrey Kempter.  The “guide” is intended first as a table-top reference for utility arborists, second as text for students interested in the field and third as a study guide for utility specialist candidates.

Attendees of this presentation will be able to:
    • Explain the history and background of utility specialist certification.
