“New Tools for Management: The Electronic Tree Risk Assessment Calculator (E-TRAC) with Donna M. Murphy, USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Area.
This informational webcast will introduce a newly developed data collection and analysis tool that can be used in Risk Tree Assessment. The software, which operates on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), is designed to provide the user with an easy to use, hand held computerized device to collect, assess and archive information on risk trees in the landscape. E-TRAC was developed by the Forest Service Northeastern Area and the Northern Research Station, and represents a major advancement in risk tree assessment field surveys. The presentation will demonstrate the software, and illustrate how the tool can be use in conjunction with the Forest Service’s publication, Urban Tree Risk Management: A Community Guide to Program Design and Implementation.
