2020 Southeast Trees & the Law Symposium
Feb 13, 2020
8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Navigating the Complexities of Neighborhood Tree Law
No single topic cuts through the heart of the various disciplines in arboriculture as trees and the law. Regardless of what we do in arboriculture; regardless of our area of expertise, trees and the law can and do negatively affect us all on a daily basis. For the first time anywhere, North Carolina State University and the NC Urban Forest Council present the Southeast Trees & the Law Symposium.
This day long intensely focused symposium will help attendees avoid being part of the lawyer’s food chain. Arborists, and more recently, landscape architects, face the ever-increasing challenges of litigation and becoming a part of the dreadful process that negatively affects them and their families. The lessons learned and education presented are derived from the knowledge gained after 1000 litigated cases involving trees. Topics will include neighbor law, wrongful death, personal injury, and attorney interpretations of the ANSI A300 series. Attendees will be presented with actual case law, and the resultant outcomes of that case law, as it relates to their daily activities in arboriculture. Whether you are a government arborist, employee of a tree care service, or owner of an ancillary service in our professional community, learn from the mistakes of others so that the past is not repeated for you, your company, and your family.
Presenters include Joe Samnik, Consulting Forensic Arborist; Skip Kincaid, Arborist and Executive Director of ISA Southern Chapter; and Hunt Choi, Deputy City Attorney with City of Raleigh.
