This will be an all day charrette style workshop. The four presenters will provide a starting point lecture to guide the days discussions. Participants will be asked to submit real life examples from their experience building in trees. Some of these will be used to stimulate discussions and sharing of knowledge. Everyone will learn something new!

Learning Objectives:

1. Review of basic tree biology
2. Review bio-mechanical principals.
3. Gain a broad understanding of the issues that occur when living trees are used to support structures like challenge events, zip lines etc. Share knowledge and stories!
