    "Arboriculture Biomechanics"

    Dr. Brian Kane
    Massachusetts Arborists Association Professor of Commercial Arboriculture
    University of Massachusetts, Amherst

    Join us for a discussion of arboricultural biomechanics – the study of how arboricultural practices like pruning, cabling, and rigging affect the mechanical performance of trees, and thus, their likelihood of failure. 

    Dr. Brian Kane is the Massachusetts Arborists Association Professor of Commercial Arboriculture at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst. He has published over fifty scholarly papers, most of which have considered topics in arboricultural biomechanics and tree worker safety. He previously served on ISA’s Board of Directors and currently chairs the Nominating and Elections Committee. Before joining academia, Dr. Kane worked as a production arborist; he maintains his ISA Certified Arborist credential. He has competed in several regional tree climbing championships, placing 4th in New England in 2006.
