Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Arbor Centre
Venue:
Engineers Australia WA, Auditorium, 712 Murray Street, West Perth WA 6005
Synopsis:
At a time when we are losing urban trees at a rapid rate, often unnecessarily, the Australia Standard AS 4970 - Protection of Trees on Development Sites - 2009, can provide a powerful tool for initiating and guiding, the tree retention process. This AS 4970 presentation is targeted at a more executive, decision making level (for those in roles such as Planners, Engineers, Architects, Landscape Architects and Parks managers etc.) and is formulated to provide; • A broad overview of AS 4970; what it models; what it actually says; and the staged process it recommends for tree retention; and • An overview, and examples of how to manage the tree retention process, from planning and decision making, through to implementation. Over all, the aim of the presentation is to equip participants, with a broad understanding of how to utilise this Australian Standard AS 4970, to support the successful retention of worthwhile trees in the urban environment. This should; • increase participant understanding of the tree retention process; and • Increase participant capacity to ask the right kind of questions, at the right times. About the speaker: Charlie Firth joined Arbor Centre in 2016 to work with its Consultancy division. Previously, he was employed as Coordinator of Horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne where he was responsible for scheduling and coordinating external contractors and a team of full time staff to conduct a wide range of horticultural and Arboricultural works within the garden and surrounding parkland.
