Seminars & presentations

Learn at home – or come to us!

Information exchange between experts and arborists forms the valuable basis of specialist skills and further development in our profession. Take advantage of our many years of practical experience, get involved in the latest developments in arboriculture, and experience the practical presentation of studies and research work in our courses.

The public seminars we plan to hold are all listed in our seminar calendar. The topics they cover can also be brought to you as a specific training event for your company, management department or institution. We can hold the courses either on your premises, or in our own training facilities in Gauting.

If you are interested in a special topic and there is currently no date for that in our seminar calendar, please email us, as there is subject matter we would only provide on demand.

Biomechanics and visual inspections of compromised trees

Spectacular tree damage is a challenge for everyone involved. However, if one understands the biomechanical background, it can help in assessing the safety risk, even in difficult cases. The two main factors that can contribute to a tree failing are: external loads that can occur, and the tree’s load-bearing capacity. Both factors can often be estimated without the use of diagnostic instruments.


We use living trees to teach you simple methods of documenting the results of a thorough visual examination. You will try out tools for estimating the residual load-bearing capacity of a compromised tree, and estimation procedures to determine the loads affecting weak points in the tree.



The main course topics are:

  • the biomechanical processes occurring when trees fail
  • factors to consider when assessing fracture and uprooting risk
  • estimating the ability to compensate; assessing the spread of defects in a tree
  • estimating the residual load-bearing capacity of damaged tree sections; documenting potential stress factors
  • the biomechanical assessment of safety risk posed by veteran trees with pronounced defects
  • estimating the residual load-bearing capacity of damaged tree sections; documenting potential stress factors
  • the biomechanical assessment of safety risk posed by old trees with pronounced defects

Arbostat basics seminar and user training

Evaluating pulling tests using the specially developed Arbostat software (Arbosafe Hard- und Software GmbH) requires a basic knowledge of mechanics and wood physics, a clear understanding of safety appraisal according to engineering principles, plus experience in estimating wind load on trees and their dynamic reactions to it.


The training consists of four units, which are usually held on four consecutive days. Participants must attend the course on all four days in order to acquire the licence to use the Arbostat software. > more information
