Partners Needed for Tree Failure Prediction Project

Working with the New York City Parks Department and tree management agencies, TREE Fund grantees Andrew Koeser, Ph.D. and Brian Kane Ph.D., along with Shawn Landry, Ph.D. and Seth Guikema, Ph.D., are developing tree risk assessment and debris estimation models that serve as the basis for a suite of mobile apps. The researchers are currently seeking NUCFAC support through the United States Forest Service to create a storm preparation and response toolkit. They are also looking for additional partners to advance these efforts, including natural resource management agencies/municipalities with storm failure data which can serve as the initial training model.
